    ...especially theie bemoaning (nonexistent) suspicious Democratic motives, when in reality they are describing their OWN Republican duplicity!

    When did the filibuster become a daily routine event? Answer: when the Republicans got their sorry asses voted out after 6 years of Bush 43 in 2006, and again in 2008. The country had a moment of clarity and spoke then, and we need to speak LOUDLY now - BOOT the G.O.P. before they finish killing this nation.

    sadly, there's a LOT of GOP (Koch) money being spread around to tell LIES, and NOT MANY on the Dem side seem to be aggressively counteracting them.

      day..But the Republicans have seen this movie before (in 1994). They learned blocking health    care and other Dem programs discourages Democrats but energizes Republicans..The result is our base stays home, and their base votes and they win..And they don't care how many are unemployed or do not have health care..

      That's what they want to happen in November..

      or just the threat of one?

      If there is a filibuster..I want to see Senators wearing Depends and eating fast food brought in by interns 24/7.

      Make the assholes work for their god damned filibuster.
