Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who sits on the Judiciary Committee, said Sunday that she regrets that her party eliminated the filibuster for approving most judicial nominees.
When Democrats controlled the Senate in 2013, then-Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) invoked what's known as the nuclear option to get around Republicans blocking President Barack Obama's judicial nominees.

During an interview Sunday on NBC News's Meet the Press, Klobuchar said that, in retrospect, the Democrats should have left the procedure alone.

Democrat means not having shame.
LOL, totally LOL
They have NO power.
Did she complain to Harry?
New words are needed; stupidity this deep should be painful to them, instead it hurts the rest of us.
dumbocraps are too stupid to see past the tip of their noses.
20 bucks? 50 bucks?
The dums will regret normalizing insurrection.
The crazy thing is their timing on it. If I’m not mistaken, they had between 51 and 60 votes continuously from 2006 through 2014, not to mention for decades before that. So they blow up the filibuster in 2013? Smart.
And, payback is a b___h!
I guess Karma is a Kobluchar!
Just like a thief who is sorry for getting caught.
Too late., woman. You screwed up. Now suck it up.
The evil are hissing and screaming as their rules are now in place and hopefully used for good, not evil like they planned.
It doesn’t pay to be stupid and mean. Payback’s a bitch and so is Sen. Klarkbar.
Something about chickens coming home to roost...
She was happy to get rid of it then.
She just isnt happy now the republicans benefit from it.
Shes unhappy they cant have different rules for democrats and republicans.
I pray all socialist hypocrites such as her die violent, painful deaths. Socialists like her have killed hindreds of millions of people in the name of socialist progress.
