Dec. 1, 2010 - Claire took to the Senate floor to express her deep frustration with gridlock in the Senate over extending tax cuts for the middle class and an international treaty that military leaders agree is key to protecting the United States from nuclear weapons. Republicans today threatened to kill the new START treaty, an international agreement to protect and secure nuclear weapons that has universal support from our military, in an effort to help secure an extension of tax cuts for millionaires. While Democrats have proposed a tax compromise that protects the middle class, Senate Republicans are holding the country's nuclear security hostage by refusing to compromise on any legislation unless the Senate passes tax cuts for very wealthiest Americans.
