Talking Points Memo
This isn't getting much notice but it deserves your attention. The senate is currently debating the reauthorization of PEPFAR, the omnibus AIDS prevention and treatment legislation.
. . . . . .
But apparently two senators -- Sessions of Alabama and Vitter of Louisiana (who of course we know is a serial user of prostitutes, so maybe he should get tested himself) -- have put holds on the legislation. So they need 60 votes to override their objection. The vote may come as soon as today.
