The full-blown push by the Marxists is now in full swing, on every front. These people are absolutely sickening.

Make Reid do it.

Despite the media’s whitewash the Dems will be permanently scarred.

Doesn’t the House control all spending?

Yeah, I thought so.

Too bad the Republicans don’t control it. Oh, wait!...

It is like holding a gun to a woman’s head and telling that if she doesn’t agree to have sex with you, you are going to rape her.

Nevada should be proud to give an old leftist geezer the opportunity to play “King of the Hill”.

Why is Moderate Mitch even talking to the guy? The GOP should refuse to negotiate one thing with Reid. Anytime he is in the room, they should walk out. He has done much the same to them, yet they come panting back for more.

Show a bit of spine, Mitch!

Anyone besides me remember all the hand-wringing when the Republicans threatened this?

The question is this...even if you throw out the filibuster...would the Democrats even pass a budget deal? I don’t think they can.

McC doesn’t “do” filibusters anyway. So how would the change have much practical impact? Republicans are too timid to filibuster.

I am speechless as to the spinelessness of the Repubs... how can they even walk upright ????
We have 2 years till the midterms and 4 till the Presidentals.....
The Republican Party has collapsed..
We have better get or act together and get a conservative party together ASAP..
Or we could be seeing a Civil War which will turn racial quickly, in the is country

Maybe McCain and Graham et al will jump in and save the day again. Just like when the GOPe was going to do the same thing Reid thought was unconstitutional, but is somehow OK with now

The intent, of course, is to destroy the GOP.
