All the more incentive to win back the Senate in 2014.
One more check on my “this is fascism” list for the so called Deomcrat ( Nationalist Socialist) Party.
You see there are no minority opinions allowed in the United States of Zimbabwe Congress. Minority opinions are what fascists say they are.
You would think Harry would be smart enough to realize that he has seven democrat senators from Red states that are in serious danger of losing in 2014, and once the filibuster is gone, it’s gone...for future senates where democrats are the minority as well...
Reid will pay for his perfidy.
Sessions said if Reid did this the GOP would shut the Senate down.
Ried is just a “useful idiot” for Obama. This is all part of Obama’s agenda to “BURY THE CONSTITUTION” -— as it is reportedly stated, that he told Putin, in spite of Putin’s own warnings about Obama’s agenda....

The greatest enemy of America is a domestic one....
Wait where are the “Concerned” Senators? Where is the Media outrage....What No gang of 14? Sen. Grahamnesty is fine with Democrats ending the filibuster?? Oh that’s right the Selective Outrage only happens when Republicans are in charge. The RINO’s in Washington are fine being the permanant minority in Congress as long as the Dems are their “Friends”......
“Weepy” Boehner did promise that the House would take-up no bills the senate passed after it eliminated the filibuster. But that won’t stop Obama’s psychotic judicial appointments, will it?
Who is the dictator
So I assume this will apply to gun control also...just 50 votes to push through.
brought to you by those D****heads in GOPe, RNC and putting Mutt Romney on the top of the ticket.
He was a drag down ticket because many republican voters stayed home and we lost an unbelievable opportunity to increase our majority in the House and get a majority in the senate.
Just insane what those tools did and next up will be two black robes that will be ideologically moored to Obama.
Each body, House and Senate, write their own rules and seat their own members. Just after the Civil War, the Republican congress actually *refused* to seat many Democrats, and they could do that. So the SCOTUS could not stop Reid from doing this.
The only thing the Republicans can do is threaten the Democrats that if Reid does this, when the senate goes Republican in the future, the Republicans will give the Democrats the same disdain, and there will be at least two years when the Democrats cannot extensively road block *anything* the Republicans wish to do.
And that could spell the end of a vast amount of what the Democrats want.
Bottom line: this is brinksmanship. Mutually Assured Destruction at two year intervals, but only if the Democrats want it. If they reject it, the balance of power continues. But if they embrace it, the Republicans will embrace it too, and *everything* the Democrats have built over the last hundred years may be forfeit.
This could mean the end of the New Deal. The end of the Great Society welfare state. Slashing the size of the federal government by 50% or more, and throwing countless Democrat bureaucrats out of work.
