Re: Reid Wants To Limit Republican Power In Senate
Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that he will try to push through a change to Senate rules that would limit the GOP’s ability to filibuster bills.

Speaking in the wake of Tuesday’s election, which boosted Senate Democrats’ numbers slightly, Mr. Reid said he won’t end filibusters altogether but that the rules need to change so that the minority party cannot use the legislative blocking tool as often.

Boo Hoo! Senator-elect from Maine complained that the rule requiring 60 votes to overcome a filibuster "is not part of the Constitution."

Bet that sucker doesn't pull out the 'Constitution card' on Obamacare, etc etc etc.

If the Republicans win in 2016, this will backfire on the democrates. They will then bitch and complain to change it back to the way it was.

Re: Reid Wants To Limit Republican Power In Senate
First of all, the filibuster doesn't appear in the Constitution. Secondly, in the last few years the Senate decided that for a filibuster all you had to do is say, "I filibuster."

What Reid wants to do is to take the filibuster back to it's orginal idea. The filibuster will exist, but you have to DO the filibuster. That is get up and read the phone book if you want, but you have to stay on the floor of the senate and actually verbally filibuster.

This will make it clearly obvious who is opposing what and the electorate can decide who is doing what. Or we can get rid of the filibuster and do up or down vote.

Any of you Repubs remember all the Repub horseshit of "up or down vote! Up or down vote!"

Now where do you have a problem?
