    senators control the senate and the hell with the rest of us.  This needs to change or we will just have more of the same grid lock, this time the GOP likes the filibuster, next time the Dems may like it, it needs to end so legislation can proceed with up or down votes.  Harry Reid could have made a real change in the filibuster and elected to take a baby step with reform which will do nothing to get these lazy rich people to do their job.  Let's hope he gets to something 'cause it looks like more of the same tos me.  There is too much secrecy in a powerful body of only 100 poeple.  Let's get some light on them and the truth may make us free after it gives us alot of heart burn.
