“Democrats already have the 60 votes needed to initiate cloture and break an actual Republican filibuster, so the rest of the timing is essentially on “autopilot,” as Reid said, because he initiated the complicated series of procedural moves cut off debate Monday.”
Then we should filibuster and let ‘em vote. The R bad guys will be on record and it will hurt southern dems like Landieu to vote yes on cloture.
Call out the anti-Constitutionalist traitors.
IIRC, there are 54 Democrats in the Senate, and 46 Republicans. Yet Dingy Harry has 60 votes to invoke cloture.
“... it will hurt southern dems like Landieu to vote yes on cloture.”
No. Because Harry, needing only 51 votes after cloture on debate, can then let several of his proles actually vote against the final bill funding Obamacare.
