Reid won't rule out filibuster elimination

Via NC Renegade



Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Sunday said he was not currently considering an elimination of the filibuster for legislation, but he warned that the country could not remain “paralyzed” by Republican obstruction.

Reid and the Senate Democratic majority enraged the GOP last year by moving to cut off the filibuster for most presidential appointees and judicial nominations. They left in place a 60-vote threshold for legislation. But in a rare Sunday television interview, Reid stopped short of categorically ruling out such a move in the future.

“We’re not there yet,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “No, I’m not thinking about that today.”

  1. Does anyone have the software to airbrush a short mustache under Heir Harry's nose in that picture? Their is an uncanny resemblance.

  2. I said when they ended the filibuster just for judges it would just be the first step. Once they see how easy it is to dictate the filibuster is dead.
