Weekend at Bernie's. Sen .Bernie Sanders Filibustering Obama-GOP Tax Deal
At 10:24 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 10, Sen. Sanders took to the floor of the U.S. Senate to lay out a clear argument against extending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans, against codifying a low inheritance tax rate which would impact only the richest 0.3 percent of households, and against a payroll tax "holiday" which would undercut funding for the Social Security trust fund. Without a break, the senator remained standing and on the Senate floor for 8 hours, 35 mins., and 14 secs.

Here are some of the highlights to this historic filibuster, including Bernie admonishing Obama for extending the tax cuts for the wealthy, defending social security, China, the sickness of greed, and the collapse of the middle class.
