GOP Defeat of Stimulus Plan

April 30, 1993

Clinton's economic stimulus package was defeated because a Senate rule allows debate on an issue to continue indefinitely unless 60 senators vote to end it. Maybe it's time to scrap not only this undemocratic rule but the undemocratic Senate itself, in which a state like Wyoming gets two senators, the same as California, even though California's population is about 65 times larger.
