This story will never make the paper tomorrow. It actually admits that the Dems filibustered also. The left just wants you to think that GOP are the only ones that ever did this.
After this, I don't EVER want to hear a Democrat complain about the filibuster. They had their chance to do the right thing but were unwilling.
Just because a few gutless Dems prevented meaningful filibuster reform doesn't mean the problem has been solved, martin64. There will be complaining until either the GOP stops abusing the filibuster or until meaningful reform is passed. And as for you avejoecon, check the numbers; the Dems did use the filibuster under GW but not in the stratospheric amounts used by the GOP the past 4 years. Still, if the Dems abuse it as well as your party, why not get rid of it for both?
