  •  here's how we answer that on Balkingpoints / Twitr (5+ / 0-)

    Senator #Reid , if you have +55 and can't get +51 for #filibuster reform, resign as ML

    also,

    #Reid "didn't have the votes" for #filibuster reform. Then why did McConnell deal away anything? 3 Strikes, Out

    ---

    Upshot for me is, Reid did not at all go to the mat for what he'd promised Progressives (see Maddow clip > http://Balkingpoints.com/...

    He is ineffectual as ML / needs to go. We have a few people pressuring him already, and are hopeful to build it into a louder chorus this weekend & next week.

    Thanks - Roy@Balkingpoints

      What's the point of placing a (D) after your name if you're actually a (RE)? That's "Republican Enabler". Harry Reid(NV-RE).

    •  Balkingpoints - there were never 50 votes (0+ / 0-)

      for substantive filibuster reform regardless of what advocates said in public. The advocates were trying to whip the vote using the media and were sent to the woodshed for their efforts.

        If you are Majority Leader, you are +55 and you can't get on the mat and get +51 of those - after you promised multiple times to do so (see Maddow clip) - then you are ineffectual as said Majority Leader.

        Reid does not deserve a pass on this.
