McCarthy: GOP Should Abolish Filibuster
McCarthy GOP Should Abolish Filibuster - Breitbart
You can't make this shit up!
The GOP sets records for the number of attempted Senate clotures when they aren't in power, but when they gain power, all of a sudden they want to change the rules.
Does anyone think the Dems will agree? They had been crying and moaning about the GOP's historical clotures approach. Now, how will they feel about it now?
All this "party first" by both parties continues as America continues to spin it's wheels.

The Filibuster is a vital tool for the minority. And that's what our Country is all about. It's about making sure the minority has a voice. We are not a 'Mob-Rule Democracy.' Although most Americans think we are. I blame that ignorance on our miserable failing Public School System. We are actually a Republic. So abolishing the Filibuster is an Un-American act. Shame on both Democrats and Republicans suggesting it.

I doubt they'd take the chance.

That senator is just bluffing. They GOP doesn't dare. They know they're back in the minority after 2016. And until then, a presidential veto gives the same results as a Democratic filibuster, therefore losing the filibuster doesn't cost the Democrats anything.

The rules have already been changed. The dems did it. I wouldn't even pretend to need 60 votes fuck them. We get 51 and the law passes.

It is beyond HYPOCRITICAL that NaziCons now want to abolish the Senate filibuster. They don't like it when BOTH sides can play the same silly fucking un-American games. What goes around comes around.

As it is also hypocritical for you to whine about this, while Uncle Harry changed rules when convenient.

Did Harry ever try to use the so-called "nuclear option" to end filibustering?

I'm guessing that statement by Stephanie, covers both parties and their followers. Right Steph?

If Republicans do not turn Harry Reid's manipulation of the rules back on him and his then they are the party of WIMP and should resign so we can elect some folks with backbone.

Yes

In a shocking development Thursday evening, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) triggered a rarely used procedural option informally called the “nuclear option” to change the Senate rules.

Reid and 50 members of his caucus voted to change Senate rules unilaterally to prevent Republicans from forcing votes on uncomfortable amendments after the chamber has voted to move to final passage of a bill.

Reid’s coup passed by a vote of 51-48, leaving Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) fuming.

Why Harry Reid Had to Use the ‘Nuclear Option’ - The New York Times
So, ladies and gentlemen, this is what happened here.....

Lakunta asked a question without fully knowing the truth.
So, while I was providing the hack with proof that Uncle harry DID use the "Nuclear Option", chief shitting bull had to go do a little Google searching.
After unknown number of pages of search results the Dishonest Poster of the Month was able to find a 'reason' for Reid's actions.

Conclusion:
When Dembulbs have self-defined justification for changing rules it's okay.
Republicans? Not okay.


Hence the title 'Dishonest Fuck'

First of all, the Republicans tried to stop cloture, they didn't try to get cloture. And seriously, after Democrats changed the rules to suit themselves, you're whining that Republicans want to change the rules? You're criticizing them for doing what you did? Seriously?

Here's the world's tiniest violin, and it's playing just for you...

:boohoo:

Couldn't make you people up...
