Reid Threatens To Go Nuclear
By Alexander Bolton - 11/19/13 03:20 PM EST
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) announced Tuesday that he is looking at reforming Senate rules to prevent Republicans from filibustering President Obama’s judicial nominees.
“I’m at the point where we need to do something to allow government to function,” Reid said when asked if he would consider using the so-called nuclear option, a controversial procedural tactic for changing Senate rules. “I’m considering looking at the rules.”
The seldom-used tactic would allow Democrats to change the Senate’s rules with a simple-majority vote.
Thank You Mr Bolton and The Hill.
Hmmm, . . . Because Obama has done such a smash up job with his previous appointees?
