BREAKING - Harry Reid proposing a filibuster "Nuclear Option" - NOW PASSED!
Breaking now -

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is looking to change the rules of the filibuster in the Senate. This would allow several of President Obama's judicial nominees whom have been stalled by Republicans to go through. It would also limit further filibuster capabilities!

If relations between the left and the right weren't damaged enough before, they would be all but destroyed now.

I'm thinking that the Republicans can get around this by ceding cloture on the three nominees every news source is talking about. That would allow an up or down vote to decide whether they should be approved or turned away.

If Obama thinks he can change his Law once it becomes Law, I guess Mr. Reid thinks he can do the same. Gentlemen it is called Lawlessness.

What is funny is that the left will be the first ones to complain if the Republicans win majority control in 2014 and use these exact rules against them.

They did in 2010 too. They got a rule change, but when the Republicans used the same rule (that they changed), the Dems cried foul and wanted it changed back. Can't remember the specific rule used, though.

Ol harry knows even if senate turns red after 2014 elections, Obama will be there to veto any bills.

Passing this gives Dems the upper hand, without no consequences down the road.

Harry Reid the soft spoken shill of the Senate.
They figured out a long time ago that its much easier to control people when we're all watching the same TV shows, listening to the same radio stations, going to the same movies, looking at the same billboards, eating the same food, and speaking the same language...

This is what happens when you act like babies and hold up appointments for the majority of a presidents term. You get your toys taken away. Just like babies who can't behave.

Just saying "NO" to everything is not governing. It's just saying "NO" and really the reason the republicans lost the last election.

I hope they enjoy their legacy along with the segregationists of being on the wrong side of history.s226

Do you find the timing of this coincidental with the passing of the Upton Bill, or the flack that the White House has taken over the ACA launch?
