     Senator is it possible to act on this now, not next beginning of session? there's too much at stake right now.
      Democrats must use the tools they have.

     And for those who say: "Be careful what you wish for the Gop will have a majority again": There is no limit on using the Constitutional option.

     The constituional option can be used any time. It could be used to re-establish a 3/5ths or even 2/3rds rule after all needed Democrat legeislation is enacted.

     Whatever happens: Good necessary fixes, make um move on this. Nice work Senator.

      Can you imagine the obstructionist Republicans voting to give themselves less power?

      Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune--without the words, And never stops at all. -Emily Dickinson
