So this happened in the Senate Thursday.
McConnell tried to attach it as an amendment to unrelated bill the Senate was currently working on, and Reid said no. But Reid did a quick head count and found he had 51 Senators who would support the bill as a stand alone. So he offered it. Seeing his little attempt at political theater disintegrate before him, all McConnell had left to do was filibuster, and object to his own bill getting an up or down vote.
That's McConnell making history again with the filibuster. Not only has he led more filibusters during his minority leadership than any other senator in history, he's now on record as one of very few senators ever to filibuster himself.
What could possibly make for a stronger case for reforming the filibuster?
