Harry Reid seeks to limit filibuster in next Senate
Harry Reid is as tired as many of us are of the Republicans’ abuse of the filibuster. Now 60 votes has become a recent Senate “requirement” in order to enter and exit the amendment and debate process. Without that, a majority could pass legislation, as used to be the norm. But the GOP has threatened to block time and time again, and without a consistent caucus of 60 votes to overcome that, legislation can’t get through.

Probably one of the first reasonable things he's proposed. There should be no such thing as a fillibuster for either side. They should have to work together and reach an agreement.

Knowing Harry Reid's history, this means that he is setting us up for some MAJOR failures. They are going to do some very crooked things and don't want to have negotiations over it. Live and learn folks.

Re: Harry Reid seeks to limit filibuster in next Senate
Is this the same Harry Reid who said that if Mitt Romney wins that he would not work with Mitt Romney??

"“Mitt Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his ‘severely conservative’ agenda is laughable,” Reid said in a statement."


Guess Obama and his cronies got some mischief planned and don't want to be hindered.

Re: Harry Reid seeks to limit filibuster in next Senate
The filibuster is a sort of check on one party doing something radical. If 60 of 100 Senators can agree on a measure, then it must be something not too far out there. It's a safeguard against the tyranny of the majority over a significant minority.

Dems should be able to avoid the filibuster if they can propose reasonable ideas that at least 5 republicans can agree with. (current balance of power is 45 GOP -- 55 Dems and liberal Independents).

In addition, it helps us understand what happens in the universe. This is also why I think that it is important to understand :-).
