I agree. It's Dingy Harry's "scorched earth policy."
2014 must really look bad if they are doing this “lame duck session move”
Valerie Jarret manuver?
How’s that reaching across the aisle working out for you, John?
Democrats will not always be in the majority. The change may come as soon as next year.
The Democrats know their time is short and that by this next time next year they will no longer be in the majority.
The purpose of this at this particular time is to distract from Obamacare failure. Obama struts out to endorse the Reid’s Nuclear Option in an effort to rev up the demoralized democrat base. They will regret this.
“Good. Lets get majorities in both Houses and win the Presidency.”
In the Spring, the Republicans of Boehner, Cantor, McCain, and Graham will cave in on amnesty and it will be all over.
Obama, Pelosi, and Reid will have free run of the country. You are about to know what it was to be an East German.
the obvious reality is that there is only one party in DC, the lawless establishment party and it takes its orders from the wealthy ruling elite.
Harry Reid and Barack Obama are trying to pack the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals with left-leaning justices, namely Patricia Millett, Nina Pillard, and Robert Wilkins.
When people say, well we should sue and challenge, well when you sue and challenge you have to take it to a court. And so they want all these things that Obama's putting in place, thousands and thousands of regulations and not just related to healthcare but related to everything. They want them upheld, they wanna box you in, so you have no recourse whatsoever at least at that level. And so they're trying to stack, they're trying to pack the court in DC, and there was a time where Democrats who had enough concern about the integrity of our system where they would've objected to that.
No faith the Tea Party will win in 2014, eh?
I hope so. Don’t forget McConnell will probably be Majority Leader then and he’s a pussy.
We know there is nothing that can be done about it at the present time. The next election is the time for outrage. .
Reid and his ilk will soooooooo regret this.
Really? If they lose the senate in the election, whats to stop them from changing the rules back before the new GOP members take office?
It is and I am foaming at the mouth. DC is a malignant city-state. Obama/Reid have declared war on the Free and the Brave.
The LIBs/DIMs hate you, your family and your Freedom. Justice will find them all.
I no doubt think they will. and the only thing that will keep it that way will be RINO's. But this is more reason for people to vote Tea Party candidates in - which have a good chance of being the majority in the Republican Party in 2014!
