Majority Leader Harry Reid announced Tuesday that the Senate will postpone the vote on energy and oil spill legislation until lawmakers return from August recess. He called it a "sad day," saying Democrats have been unable to muster support for the bill from even a "handful" of Republicans.

If this is what the bill is really about,

the legislation will hold BP accountable and create green jobs for an economy in need.
