Reid says GOP in Senate has "turned 'advise and consent' into 'deny and obstruct.'"




Amanda Carpenter ?@amandacarpenter 1m

Given the horrendous poll number Democrats are suffering for Obamacare, Reid is going to regret this. Very quickly. Bet on it.

Rs shouldn't complain about this change. Embrace it, start talking about how you'll use it to repeal Obamacare.

This is not a good time for the party that dumped ObamaCare on America to be talking about "nuclear options" in the Senate.

McConnell says Dems are "cooking up a fake fight over judges" to distract from Obamacare.

RT @freddoso: The precedent here is not the filibuster. It's that you can change senate rules w 51 votes.

In 2005 Reid was vehemently against what he is now proposing.  Of course then the republicans controlled the senate.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Senate Democrats currently voting to do something they called "un-American" and a "Constitutional crisis" a few years ago.

McConnell: Reid's Filibuster Threat Doesn't Distract People From ObamaCare - It Reminds Them Of It (Video)

In response to Harry Reid Threatens to Go Nuclear - In 2005 He Felt Differently (Video):

US Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell took to the Senate floor, this morning to blast Democrats for attempting to change the subject from the devastating consequences of Obamacare to changing the Senate rules regarding filibusters.

He reminded the chamber how the Obama administration and Democrats were willing to do and say anything in order to force ObamaCare on the public.

"The president and his Democratic allies were so determined to force their vision of healthcare on the public, they assured them up and down that they wouldn't lose the plans they had, that they'd save money instead of losing it, and that they'd be able to use the doctors and hospitals they were already losing. But of course, we know, that rhetoric doesn't match reality," McConnell said.

After making note of the unmitigated disaster ObamaCare has become, he taunted "I'd be running for the exits, too, if I'd supported this law. I'd be looking to change the subject!"

He continued, "it doesn't distract people from ObamaCare - it reminds them of ObamaCare. It reminds them of all the broken promises, it reminds them of the power grabs, it reminds them of the way Democrats set up one set of rules for themselves, and another, for everybody else.

One set of rules for them - and another for everybody else. Actually, this is all basically the same debate, and rather than distract people from ObamaCare, it only reinforces the narrative of a party that is willing to do and say just about anything to get its way."

@jpodhoretz Should the GOP have caved on the DC Circuit fight? Accepting 2 of the 3 Dem nominees would have fractured Reid's caucus

jimgeraghty ?@jimgeraghty 2m

So, repealing whatever's left of Obamacare in January 2017 will take 218 GOP House members, 51 GOP senators, and a GOP president.



Mike Memoli ?@mikememoli 1m

@jimgeraghty no. this is only on nominations. Senate Rs, if in majority, would have to move to extend to legislation

Republican Senators might as well go back to their districts and do like Obama, campaign for the next election.  They will have no voice in the Senate, so why bother. I am royally po'd.
