The Senate failed to invoke cloture on an ‘Rat attempt to close the American oil futures markets after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) attempted to ram it through without addressing the one item that would actually have a positive-for-consumers effect on oil prices – drilling oil here.

Let there be a Senate shutdown. That’ll get Congressional approval ratings down to 5 percent.
