Read this article. Both parties have played this game for decades and it is a foolish game to play. More threat than anything else in the past. Both Obama and Biden said, when they were Senators, how absolutely wrong it would be as the “filibuster is a necessary tool. This is the kinda stuff that happens when you give somebody the launch codes for the missles when you know that they shouldn’t have them in the first place, regardless of their position. This was done to remove the “roadblocks” occurring in the Senate. It is a shame that the buffoons in Congress won’t read or can’t understand how our Constitution and government was formed and why. With the type of administration that is in power right now, the filibuster is exactly what is necessary to limit the damage on the nation; a nation of the people, by the people, for the people. Guess what? The branches of government are starting to lose the lines of definition while the politicos gain more personal power. The chief executive is quickly becoming Tsar or King (just a small step below supreme ruler or dictator) and there is but one loser in it all–us!
I am absolutely fed up with all the bullshit of and in the U.S. Government. Next step? The GOP will be taking this to the 2014 election and will be harping on how the Dems have done what they can to spend your money wastefully and destroy your semblance of life and freedom. They will have all the lies, cover-ups, graft and imposed hardships to cover it. And even Obamacare. Yeah, this was a really smart move for the Independents and all but 3 Dems in the Senate. What harm they can cause before 2014 I don’t know. I know one thing. There is a silly little man in the Senate that has made Americans’ life a living hell at every turn. Nevadans should be very proud.
