    Provide documentation with links that refutes my documentation if you can.
    You mean they broke the democrats record under Bush that set the precedent.

    Care to point out what things were changed between the bill that came out of committee and the bill that was voted on?

    Yes, did you not see the graph I provided that shows they went far beyond the historical record?

    Look to the far right of the graph where it sky rockets. That represents the unprecedented number of filibusters by the Republicans.

    The first big amount is democrats filibustering Bush which you ignore.

    The chart is wrong since the GOP does not have enough votes to filibuster.

    When you said "Because things changed through all the votes and deals Reid made"I assumed that you knew what you talking about.

    My mistake; as evidently you were pullin s*** out of your ***.Another mistake is thinking that somehow I could get a coherent response from you.Wont make them mistakes again.

    Are you denying this happened? Remember Landrieu or Nelson?

    Are you saying this does not change the Bill?
