Vice President Says That Democrats Have Wrecked The Senate

Not only are Democrats lying about everything, but they are cheating too.

“The nuclear option abandons America’s sense of fair play . . . tilting the playing field on the side of those who control and own the field. I say to my friends on the Republican side: You may own the field right now, but you won’t own it forever. I pray God when the Democrats take back control, we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing.”

    One crazy thing is doesn’t this mean Obamacare can be repealed with just a simple majority in both houses, (plus the Presidency)? They passed it with only a simple majority to begin with so the same sort of gimmick should now be possible to repeal it if all it takes is a simple majority.

    I’m having democratic déjà vu all over again!

    This will likely lead to a very Republicanisn with only a small majority, so it may be good news:

    Applies to judicial nominees, other than the SCOTUS. Filibusters have not been done away with for other matters.

    • Mike D says:

      Nothing other than history and tradition has kept the majority from imposing its will. Now that this has been done away with, there is nothing preventing this from being applied to anything the senate does.
