Euphemisms to look out for: "the Bill Collapsed"
A Democratic-backed jobs and economic relief bill collapsed in the Senate on Thursday after failing for the third time to break through a wall of Republicans who rejected repeated entreaties to join in advancing the $100 billion-plus package, including aid for cash-strapped states and the unemployed.
No, the Bill didn't collapse. The Democrats pushing the bill collapsed. Big difference.

Until the Democrats actually force the Republicans to filibuster—for weeks on end if they want to—it seems to me the Democrats aren't really serious.
