The top Republican in the Senate on Tuesday rejected President Donald Trump's suggestion that his party change the chamber's rules to undercut the ability of Democrats to block legislation with filibusters.
"There is an overwhelming majority on a bipartisan basis that is not interested in changing the way the Senate operates on the legislative calendar," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters.

Primary turtles’ ass.
I’ve just had to endure 6 years of Pelosi and Reid marching in lockstep with Obama and running a coup of the legislature to ramrod whatever Soros wanted that day.
Now turtle cares more about the dems then the GOP?
We’re not voting our way out of this mess folks.
Schumer probably kissed McConnell on the lips after McConnell refused to consider changing Senate rules on the legislative filibuster. Fortunately, no one got a picture of that ..
Two ways to change the government...ballots or bullets.
Obviously, the GOP Establishment is quite happy with pushing Schumer’s Agenda.
If the dopes on our side would stop sending these idiots back to congress. Problem solved.
Trump needs a new Dept: The Dept. of Unantidisestablishmentarianism.
He doesn’t have the votes anyway.
Your wife has a nice job, Mitch, be a shame if she lost it.
Note that Republicans control 32 state houses, so we would get a filibuster-proof GOP Senate. Also, the state houses are much less likely to turn Democrat in states already "red."
Response self censored to save the mods time.
Spot on. Spot on. You are correct.
You are correct. I’ve seen a number of posts stating the only solution is to vote in a 60 majority in the Senate. While I admire their perpetual optimism, now is the time to drain the swamp before it’s too late.
Just get it done, then, Mitch.
We need the House
We need the Senate
We need the Presidency
Oh by the way, now we need 60 in the senate
I cant wait to hear their next excuse for inaction.
I would bet that President Trump has begrudgingly read Thousands of Contracts and such before Signing them. What he should do is this:
Congress has sent me Legislation to keep the Government running until September and as Soon as the Leaders of Both Houses of Congress read the ENTIRE Legislation,including All other Laws and regulations referenced, in to the Public Record for the American People without pause, I will SIGN IT!
And this is precisely why nothing gets done for the American people.
The cuck party strikes again.
