Republican Senate must get rid of 60 vote NOW! It is killing the R Party, allows 8 Dems to control country. 200 Bills sit in Senate. A JOKE!
(Excerpt) Read more at twitter.com ...
The very outdated filibuster rule must go. Budget reconciliation is killing R’s in Senate. Mitch M, go to 51 Votes NOW and WIN. IT’S TIME!
Republicans in the Senate will NEVER win if they don’t go to a 51 vote majority NOW. They look like fools and are just wasting time......
....8 Dems totally control the U.S. Senate. Many great Republican bills will never pass, like Kate’s Law and complete Healthcare. Get smart!
If the Senate Democrats ever got the chance, they would switch to a 51 majority vote in first minute. They are laughing at R’s. MAKE CHANGE!
Mr. President, we will still have the RINOS in the Senate who lie to win their primary every 6 years.
The Republicans LOVE the filibuster.
It allows them to present the appearance they’re somewhat conservative.
Thanks in advance.
Priebus allies are leaking
One such is that WH is moving to be Independent of republican party
Not sure what that means..but..alienating congress doesnt help if they go after impeachment. Nixon resigned because he didnt have support
Mccain already gloated about giving the healthcare finger to trump
If trump doesnt fire sessions he could go for vacancies act which might trump doj succession law
The repubs are LIARS. That is the bottom line here. Also, the descriptors seditionist and traitor have some relevance.
Just read that chuck Johnson got a subpoena and cernovich expects one
Another rumor...priebus didnt sign nondisclosure
There are not 30 Republicans in the Senate who want what we want. There may not be 20.
Cantor revealed what a joke it all is
I dont really trust any of them
AND 3 RINOs,
Getting rid of the 60 vote rule looks good now.......but the way the panty waste pubbies are going they won’t be keeping control for long and then the RATS will take control.
“Republicans in the Senate” trending on Twitter
It’s time for historians to come out front and center. What was the original intent of the writers of the Constitution. Remember it took 8 years to complete as the writers argued abut almost everything. But the result was, and is magnificent. A document for the ages.
From what I have read, the original intent regarding passing legislation was for a simple majority. The Constitutional Convention negotiations were clear that legislation required a simple majority, and treaties and vetoes required 2/3rds.
These current “filibuster” rules added at a much later date, much later. Rules can go away just as they came.
The failed Obamacare repeal showed clearly that the Republicans cannot pass anything important even with a simple majority.
How is Kelly going to be able to get an agenda through Congress if trump goes to war with them
Grassley already has shaded trump in two tweets this week.
Nixon fired his COS and hired a general. It didnt work
I dont know the solution but trump may burn it all to the ground rather than resign. I guess that might be a good thing
GoP bought off by too many people
Didn’t the GOP keep the Senate in Session under Obama at some
point to keep recess appts from happening?
Seems I remember something like that.
The Trump loyalist types outside the admin should be lining up real, Trump conservative challengers for all the weasel-moderate senators facing reelection next year.
They need to be promoted as a slate that will vote true to their posturing—unlike so many of the “tea party” Republicans who were Establishment players either all along or from the minute they got elected.
