  •  Change the rules on Lawmaking, not just Appointees (7+ / 0-)

    It seems that 'appointees' have been what Reid was talking about one of those times he was going to do something about the situation.

    But it really has to include laws as well. Just stop obstructing the function of government, period. A filibuster like we used to have -- you had to commit your body and your time to do it -- that had some integrity to it, even if not always used for good things.

    But the filibuster we have now? It's a mix of dereliction of duty and malfeasance to keep it going. For Laws as well as Appointments.


    Actual Democrats: the surest, quickest, route to More Democrats. And actually addressing our various emergencies.
