Bush Nominee Blocked After He Pushes $30B Tax Break for Wal-Mart

David Sirota summarizes the story on DailyKos:
Last week, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) grilled White House budget director nominee Jim Nussle at Nussle's Senate confirmation hearing. ... Now, just today, the Associated Press reports that Sanders is using his filibuster power to block Nussle's nomination, putting his entire confirmation in jeopardy. ... he supports giving the members of Wal-Mart's Walton family alone a tax break worth more than $30 billion.
At least Bernie Sanders has picked up on the story about how many families stand to gain how much from the estate tax repeal.
