The fillabuster isn't likely to go away but it might get modified if McConnell abuses it. Instead of a 60 vote threshold to end debate it could be changed to a 40 vote threshold to continue debate. It would require the minority party to always be present in the Senate chamber so they can vote to keep debate sustained.


Remember why, specifically, the Bill of Rights was written...remember its purpose. It was written to limit the power of government over the individual.

There is no believing a liar, even when he speaks the truth.

Mitch is an old, defeated man. He's been owned since he arrived in D.C. and those who own him are ready to put him out to pasture. Until then he'll do what he's told to do just like he always has.

Ahhh, the Uniparty Unites.


Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a man a welfare check, a forty ounce malt liquor, a crack pipe, an Obama phone, free health insurance. and some Air Jordan's and he votes Democrat for a lifetime.

From Breitbart News.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/...ders-proceed-on-power-sharing-agreement/

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced Monday that a power-sharing agreement in the Senate no longer needs to stipulate that the filibuster rule remain intact after two Senate Democrats confirmed they would not support abolishing it.


Shoot low Sheriff, they're riding shetlands.

I'm no fan of McConnell but one thing he isn't is a fool. Doing this would render him irrelevant if he wasn't positioning himself for the next election. I have no faith in any politician but to suggest McConnell or anyone else in congress is willing to give away his power is hard to swallow.

They believe they are in control so they will just join ranks and rule us all. New world order has succeeded and taken control.
