    Yep, 53 of them have signed on to reject the House debt ceiling plan. Was't someone whining about pledges yesterday?

    Senate Reformers Urge New Yorkers to Join the Call for Immediate

    Action on Mayor Koch’s New York Uprising Heroes of Reform Pledge

    53 of 62 Senators Signed Pledge Before Election; Governor Cuomo

    Highlighted Reform Pledge in State of State as a Priority

    (Albany, NY) – On the first day of State Senate session, Senators designated “Heroes of Reform” by Mayor Ed Koch called on Majority Leader Dean Skelos and Senate leadership today to keep their promise and pass Mayor Koch’s “New York Uprising Heroes of Reform” pledge as the Senate’s first order of business in the New Year.

    Senate Democrats encouraged all New Yorkers to sign an online petition at Pass The Pledge, to ensure that the Senate Majority keeps its promise and delivers on reform. The petition calls for action on the New York Uprising reform bills before the Senate moves on to consider other legislation. In his first State of the State address, Governor Cuomo wholeheartedly embraced Mayor Koch’s reform pledge as being among his top priorities for the new session.

    Session Begins, Senate

    They need to sign something soon because they all go on a 4 week vacation. I swear these people are on vacation more then they are working. Something like what our president does!!

    I'll show you Obama's vacation days if you show me Bush's.

    Q: Has President Obama taken more vacation time than his predecessors?

    A: According to one count, Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush spent more time on "vacation" during their first year than President Obama did. Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton spent less time on "vacation."

    In no way am I defending the antics, but I see this manuever as a message to the congressional tea party reps who signed their pledge and have held Boehner's feet to the fire because of it.
