Bunning's Hall of Fame stall tactics

Now, the U.S. Senate can probably understand how opposing batters felt during Jim Bunning's Hall of Fame 17-year baseball career. These days, Bunning is a Republican Senator in Kentucky, and is being charged with single-handedly holding up a $10 billion transportation bill. The now-expired bill would have extended unemployment benefits and other programs to 100,000 people; also affected by Bunning's stall tactics - tied to the request for "unanimous consent" are 41 transportation projects across the country, which are now suspended.

What do you think of Bunning's stance? Is it just "politics as usual?" Is your firm affected by this stalling?
