    Senate Rules Committee passes changes 10-9 (Guess the party split?) to reduce DimocRAT stall tactics. McConnell trying to do it before the 2018 midterms because he isn't positive about the results.

    Of course not. GOP leadership at all levels lacks the jevos to get out and do what it takes to not only keep but gain seats.

    That proposal just passed the Senate Rules Committee:

    Looking to speed the confirmation process for a backlog of President Trump’s appointments, Senate Republicans on Wednesday advanced a measure to cut down on floor debate for certain executive branch and judicial nominees. Republicans said Democrats forced their hand on the issue by making the Senate devote too much floor time over the past year to clearing procedural hurdles on even non-controversial and lower-level nominees.Pointless wasting time, even when we know what the outcome is going to be, is what we’re talking about here today,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The change, pushed by Sen. James Lankford, Oklahoma Republican, passed the Senate rules committee in a party-line vote, 10-9. The change would cut the maximum debate time for non-Cabinet executive branch nominees from 30 hours to eight, and for district court nominees from 30 hours to two.
    Just remember, losing the Senate majority could put this guy in the lead:

    And list the House majority could make this one Speaker - THIRD IN LINE TO THE PRESIDENCY!

    You must be asking a rhetorical question, because I don't see any of those around (good, because they sound scary). I would say it has something to do with the insane opposition that opposes because they don't know how to do anything else.

    I gave you a reason. Obviously, you prefer a different one. That's okay, we won't hold it against you.

    If you are referring to the republicans stalling and sabotaging appointments under Obama then you are correct
