    On Saturday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid failed to receive the 60 votes he needed to move forward with his plan for a 14-month extension of the debt ceiling. Reid's plan contained no off-setting spending cuts or reforms and was intended to push the debt debate until after the 2014 mid-term elections. The vote was, 53-45, to invoke cloture and proceed to debate on the bill.

    Sounds like the rank-and-file Democrats are reading and understanding the polls.
