    that McConnell was lying to him when they made their 'grand bargain' in return for not changing senate rules in January.

    And why doesn't Harry now bring up the constitutional (a.k.a nuclear) option that the GOP threatened Dems with back during the Bush Admin??

    Where are the 'upperdown' votes??

    •  McConnell wasn't lying to Reid (0+ / 0-)

      He was lying to the citizenry. Reid knows exactly what he's doing by keeping the filibuster.  He's keeping an excuse for continuing to fuck us over.

      It's just as much Reid's fault as it is McConnell's.
