    I never said there were large filibuster proof majorities. The difference was in the House Nancy was willing to put some wight on people and got some quite difficult votes. The Senators, as a boy, with Reid as their leader and the WH giving them kid gloves treatment starting by giving Lieberman back his gavel and seniority, wasted 2 years save a couple of bills.  On top it was up to Reid and the well over 50 votes he had to change the rules about filibustering, it has taken 5 years of abuse to do a mild reform of them
