    Re: Senate approves nuclear option

    Obama and Reid both railed against the Nuclear option when the democrats were in the minority now that they are in the majority they are for the nuclear option. They are such hypocrites.

    as usual, today's GOP is on the wrong side of History on their unprecedented use of the filibuster only matcdhed by their unprecedented lying about not using the filibuster when agreements are made in January--McCarthy-style

    The filibuster is an accidental loophole of the senate rules that has been taken advantage of by both sides since 1806. It was never intentional and has no foundation in the constitution.
    If third solutions can be found in compromise or tangential thinking, then either side can still make them without the need for a three fifths stalemate.
    So what if it's 60/40? Majority rule leads to tyranny for the simple reason that they can then vote the minority out of power. While certain administrative stuff is fine to decide via simple majority it's not appropriate for more significant decisions which would ABSOLUTELY include executive appointments.

    Now Obama is a dictator, a self-fulfilling prophecy made by RepubLies in 2008.
