The system was always broken. It just never became apparent because our people possessed honor, respect, and integrity.
Our system only works when we have these values. Without them, everything begins to unravel.
1 half black President has had more nominations filibustered than all white Presidents combined throughout history.
Many of his nominees have been moderates and some have even been Republicans.
There is no real difference in the nominees, only a difference in the President.
I'd say it is quite broken.
