View Diary: Needed Reform For The U.S. Senate (95 comments)

  •  A paralyzed legislature loses power (9+ / 0-)

    to the other branches of government, and also distorts the Constitutional scheme of checks and balances. The obstructionists in the Senate (and those in the House as well) should understand that they are undermining the foundations of their own role in government.  Their ability to obstruct - through effortless filibusters, holds, etc. - needs to be curbed.  Thank you.

    •  Anti-government politicians (4+ / 0-)

      naturally are not interested in governing effectively.

      Four years of NO!! from Republican Senators in the minority, and two years of tea party House Republicans passing wingnut one-house bills like the Ryan Medicare-killing budgets, prove that.

      A public option for health insurance is a national priority.
