View Diary: A sure sign Dems have the upper hand in filibuster reform: a bipartisan 'compromise' to take it away (84 comments)

  •  Effective Gun and Filibuster controls.... (5+ / 0-)

    They both are discussed ad nauseum.....but actually doing something about either?.....not so much.

    There are always lots of Senators who deep down, like to keep things the way they have "always been."  

    I will cheer as much as anyone if actual filibuster reform takes place, but I am cynical enough to believe that if anything gets passed it is more likely to be the McCain/Levin version.

    I hope I am wrong.  It would be fascinating to see how legislation moves if there were real reform.

    Next....Democrats need to wake up and realize what the GOP already has used to great effect.....that control of state legislatures is critical when it comes to gerrymandering super safe districts with Reps who can ignore public opinion.

    It is one of the reasons I fear effective gun controls will never see the light of day.

    Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.
