Republican lawmakers stuck together Monday in preventing a massive financial regulatory bill from proceeding in the Senate, despite efforts by Democrats to portray the GOP as supporters of Wall Street — not Main Street.

And the lone Democrat preventing the advancement of the bill? Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska. How’s that for a Cornhusker Kickback, Mr. Obama?
