I fully understand that the conservative mind-set equates deregulation as a bridge to free markets, but you've lost sight of how without checks and balances of such a system, the system implodes which was exactly what happened in the 2008 housing crisis. Stated yet again- "Corporate America could not fix itself." It's the very reason commercial banks went running to the Fed Res banks at the height of the crisis. It's a shame folks like you still refuse to accept the truth of the matter.
Now, on this filerbuster issue, all Sen. Reid appears to be saying is if Senate Republicans are going to reneg on an agreement on their part to stop stonewalling confirmation of presidential appointments, he will end filerbustering in the Senate and go with a simple majority vote. Frankly, I think this is long overdue not due to political ideology but because it just makes sense.
If a Senator disagrees with a matter, he should voice his displeasure durning open debate. Senators shouldn't be allowed to just ramble on non-stop about anything the majority of which has absolutely nothing to do with the subject at hand or the bill as proposed. The filerbuster is nothing more than a tool used by disgruntled blowhards who just want to stall an issue or kill a vote. Both sides have done it. It's beyond time to end this obstructionist practice.
