President Trump’s Cabinet picks are likely to be easily confirmed. That’s because of Senate Democrats.

Senate Democrats are not going to be able to block Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions bid to become attorney general. And they can’t do much to stop Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo from assuming the helm of the CIA.

And they have only themselves to thank for it.

That’s because exactly three years ago, the Democratic Senate majority — led by Harry Reid (Nev.) — rammed through controversial rules fundamentally changing the way the Senate does business. They unleashed in November 2013 what’s called the “nuclear option” allowing senators to approve by a simple majority all presidential appointments to the executive branch and the judiciary, with a big exception for Supreme Court justices.

Thanks Harry, pothead

Reid was worth more than hot air after all.

Inaugural cabinet appointments are rarely filibustered especially when they come from the ranks of the Senate. The good-old boy system is alive and as strong as ever.

Some of us did warn the left the same rules would work in the favor of Republican Presidents as well but for some odd reason alot of them didn't think there would be a Republican President again anythime soon.
