Senate Dems Delay Vote on Oil Spill, Energy Bill
Senate Democratic leaders announced Tuesday they don't have the 60 votes necessary to pass a scaled-back bill that would lift the cap on oil spill liability for energy companies and jump-start electric and natural gas-powered cars.
Majority Leader Harry Reid said he was unable to find a handful of Republicans to vote for a bill.
The delay is the latest setback for Democrats trying to pass energy legislation. Late last month, they were forced to drop a limit on pollution blamed for global warming because there wasn't enough support for it.
