Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
This has nothing to do with nuclear weapons does it?
I think it's pretty obvious that Harry Reid will hold the current rule until a Supreme Court Judge nomination comes up, and then he will change that too. Moreover, I'm pretty sure that his last act as a lame duck Senate Majority leader will be to reinstate the Filibuster rule and then scream blood murder if the big evil Republicans even hint at doing what he did.
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
This is nothing but "wag the dog". Dem's are declaring war on reps to change the subject from the obamacare fiasco and it is already working.
(Emphasis mine)GEORGE WILL: There's no limiting principle in the principle that they're invoking, that is majorities should rule all the time. What this means is if in the spring of 2017 there is a Republican president, which there could be, the Republicans still hold the House and they have 51 Senators, they can repeal Obamacare with 51 votes. And I'm not sure the people who did this today have thought this through.
George Will: New Filibuster Rules Could Lead To Repeal Of Obamacare
While Obama and the democrats are overjoyed to have the ability to pack the DC appeals court with their pro-ObamaCare stateist judges (it's been reported that they are the ones that will hear all the cases regarding ObamaCare regulation interpretation) me thinks that they just screwed ObamaCare into an earlier repeal than if they hadn't.
Are they, and many others that support this law, still of the opinion that everyone'll love it and the repeal movement will lose all traction? I'm kinda doubting that. I see it as more likely to be a growing snowball rolling down hill and constantly getting bigger.
A great political strategist he's not, in spite of the myths that say he is. This would appear to be just another example that he's not.
Obama: The Myth of the Master Strategist | National Review Online
a bogus threat from a typically overstated george will
by then Obamacare will be as 'easy' to repeal as a social security
we already see that the GOP has nothing to offer to replace it
don't think they intend to remove access to newly acquired healthcare from the vast numbers of its low information base
No plan? Not quite.
H.R. 3121. It's only been around since September
I would prefer some level of coperation between the MS party; there isn't any. Hyperpartisanship means we are in constant gridlock mode.
This is a political move for the DC Court of Appeals, but then EVERYTHING -i mean literally EVERYTHING in DC is politicized.
The only way out is a coaltion type government (3rd party), but Americans "cling" to the duopoly.
It's a mess, there isn't any really good answer: impasse isn't helpful, nor is simple majority rule.
