Filibuster This!

5 01 2011

Looks like Reid might be serious about reform. This will be an interesting few days to watch.

Reid:

Here’s the bottom line: We may not agree yet on how to fix the problem – but no one can credibly claim problems don’t exist. No one who has watched this body operate since the current minority took office can say it functions just fine. That wouldn’t be true, it would be dishonest. No one can deny that the filibuster has been used for purely political reasons — reasons far beyond those for which this protection was invented and intended.
