    The Senate's top Democrat vowed to push ahead with filibuster reform with or without Republican support.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said it's "very clear" that members of his party want to change Senate rules to weaken the filibuster.

    "They believe, as I believe, that the rules have been abused," Reid said at the Capitol after a caucus meeting with Senate Democrats.

    "We hope that Republicans see the light of day and would work with us," Reid added. "If not, we'll do it on our own."

    What a joke.

    Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.
