    Senators and Senators-elect see that millions of Americans are demanding filibuster reform?  I'd be the first to sign if one was out there.

    If Mitch and the radical republican House leadership want to hold sequestration and the Fiscal Cliff hostage to more tax cuts for the rich, then Senator Reid should hold the sword of filibuster REPEAL, not reform over Boehner and McConnell's heads if they choose to bluff.

    If the House tries to power play with this, the President should make it clear that he will veto any Fiscal Cliff repair that does not raise taxes on the Rich, making the Republicans responsible for raising taxes on 98 or 99 per cent of the American people.  Remember, the Radical Republicans think compromise is capitulation, and compromise is a sign of weakness.  Negotiate from strenght, make the Radical Republicans pay a heavy, heavy political price if they try to continue Bush tax cuts for the rich.

    Republicans are like alligators. All mouth and no ears.
