Mitch McConnell filibusters himself

  1. 2
    Mitch McConnell proposed an amendment for no other reason than to try and embarrass Democrats, Reid then offered to bring it to a vote as a stand-alone bill at which point Mitch McConnell filibustered his own bill. At what point do we say things have gone horribly wrong?

    Only problem is that all of us get wrecked by MMcC and his cohorts. I do hope all remember 2 years from now, if the Mayan calendar is wrong, that embarrassment was put ahead of the good of the country

    Of course, this is not new behavior for that man...
    he made his agenda perfectly clear 4 years ago and should be removed as it is not in step with the agenda of the nation...

    We might as well get rid of the debt limit. It has had no effect on behavior and only serves as a useless distraction. We've already shown that the federal budget is an unnecessary exercise.

    And then there is H.Reid, who on the topic of Senate rules, completely contradicts himself in this series of comparisons from 2005 and the present.

    I give Breitbart.com credit for their out-of-context editing skills, but not so much on accuracy. In 2005 Senate Republicans pushed to remove the filibuster altogether on judicial nominees. Reid has not proposed to do away with the filibuster, only to make senators actually filibuster if they are going to filibuster. The problem Republicans have with that is that they simply filibuster too much to put in the time required to actually do what's required of a filibuster, and that's the big difference between the filibuster of 2005 and 2012, it's essentially been reinvented by Republicans, in graph form: http://healthcaretrends.files.wordpr...-gridlock1.jpg
