Can someone please tell me why the Democrats now think getting rid of the Filibuster rule in the Senate is such a great idea?
When the Republicans wanted to do it they called it the Nuclear option and it was going to be a bad thing. . . end of the world and all that. . .
How quickly they forget.
I wonder how well this has been thought through . . . and what will they say when the Republicans are back in charge some day and they start overturning all those programs like Obamacare, or wipeout the gun laws they are trying to put in place. . . . How about privatize Social Security or pushing for a stronger Patriot Act? Wipe out immigration reform or pass who knows what to deal with illegals and our open boarders. . . Recognize gay rights or wipe them out? This is not good no matter how you look a it
Folks this is still a bad idea no matter who comes up with it. The Filibuster is critical in making the parties work together on laws so one side does not ram through all it wants. We are a republic and they represent us. We are not all Rep or Dem or Ind. . . we all need a say in what is going on in DC.
So please, no matter what side you support in DC look at the facts and tell them not to touch the filibuster rule. What helps you now will be used against you later in DC and it is about time we all learned that. Before any law is passed think about how the other side will use it before you get too excited because some day they will get the chance to do just that. . . .
