It was McConnell, not Reid...NO MATTER WHAT REID SAYS!Whate ever, dude. You're assumption is also duly noted, and you're avoiding Reid. got itSullshit. McConnell would have done it anyway. He is corrupt to the core.Yeah, you're right, but Harry Reid did open the door for the change.Untrue. Democrats did not get rid of the 60 vote requirement for Supreme Court justices. Republicans did that. The change was for lower cfourt justices and other federal appointments which was being blocked by Republicans.We all remember this. He rolled the dice and crapped out. If it was still 60 votes to confirm a judge, none of Trump’s judges would have been confirmed. THAT SHIT IS ON THE DEMS. THOSE ASSHOLES CHANGED THE RULES.

It wouldn't have happened without his boneheaded decision.
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tells CNN's Chris Cuomo he does not regret changing the rules to eliminate the need for 60 votes to end debate over judicial nominations, which some argue paved the way for Sen. Mitch McConnell to confirm President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee.
