More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Didn't take them long, better check your own state and health insurance within, to squeeze out more profit on crappy plans they were already dropping policy holders from if same had the need for expensive health coverage:

    Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina filed to extend individual plans that had been canceled because they were not ACA-compliant.
    officially filed the necessary paperwork to apply to extend the health insurance plans that were to be eliminated, but were given a one-year extension by the Obama administration. Those plans would see rate increases of between 16 percent and 24 percent.

      Kagro, I think you missed my point.
      The House and Senate are in theory or at least in spirit democratic, majority-rule bodies. The founders must have been well aware of the possibility of them being corrupted into mere Rumps( like we have now effectively) as it happened several times in English history but probably allowed them to right their own rules because they couldn't think of a way to control legislators except by election.

      Sorry about making you gag over my kosname again but you're no Richard Cohen.

      “If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.”

  •  Kagro - Master of Senate Rules! (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Just wanted to join those praising you for your masterful tuition on Senate Rules over the years, especially with regard to changing filibuster rules.  I've learned a lot.  More than enough to be dangerous.


    Now My 2 cents on the subject (for what its worth):

    My feelings about changing the filibuster rules has evolved over the last few months.  I was a strong backer of the "Constitutional Option" (i.e., establishing new Senate filibuster rules at the beginning of a new Congress by majority vote).  I felt that this was clearly allowed by the Constitution, if not the intent under Article I, Section 5.  I also, felt that there were multiple examples where it could be argued that the "Constitutional Option" had been used to bring about new Senate Rules, so it is steeped in precedent.  But, I used to feel that the "Nuclear Option" (i.e., changing Senate Rules mid-term by majority vote in direct conflict with Senate Rules established for the term) was a bridge too far.  While I know Reid did something like this before, as I recall that was more a majority vote on a rule's "interpretation" and not an actually rule "change".

    But like I said, I have evolved.  The Republicans blocking Judge appointments for no other reason but their political desire to stop Obama from filling vacancies that would shift the balance on the DC Circuit to a Dem. majority is over the line.  We all know that under the Bush or future Republican President (biting my tongue) they would be filling these vacancies with Republicans.  So I now firmly believe Reid needs to push the button on a limited Nuclear strike to change the filibuster rules with regard to Presidential Judge nominations.

    I have to say though, the sadistic side of me would like to see a rules change requiring a real "talking filibuster" for opposing nominations with a requirement that 40 votes are needed to prevent cloture and that the majority can hold cloture votes whenever and as frequently as they want.  I wonder how Cruz would like the taste of a "real" multi-hour, multi-day filibuster.
