  •  thanks for this, but... (3+ / 0-)

    ...only time will tell if there has, in fact, been any meaningful change toward ending Republicans' blatant misuse of their power and Senate rules to obstruct. There's a big difference between minority rights in a legsilative body and out-and-out abuse of power, obstructionism and...flipping the bird at that body, the President and the American people. And in my opinion the Republicans have been getting away with the latter (misuse of power, blatant obstructionism and flipping the bird at everyone) for far too long.

    While these procedures might help, at least to some extent, to proceed forward, my guess is that they will have very little impact on the Republicans' ability to simply continue to...flip the bird at the entire country on behalf of their financial patrons.
