Updating our post from earlier today, apparently one Senator had too much of all this Democrat-Republican kumbaya crap and had to put a stop to what was shaping up to be the first bi-partisan agreement in months. From Bloomberg:
Senator Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, said he will block a panel vote on an agreement to revive lapsed tax breaks, including a credit for corporate research and a benefit for financial-services companies’ overseas operations. The Senate Finance Committee early today had scheduled a vote for tomorrow on the $152 billion plan, which would continue most of the breaks through 2013. Coburn, saying he wanted more time to review the measure, said he would invoke a rule requiring 48 hours notice of a committee vote.
