So this is how Der Fuehrer Obama will achieve his gun grab! According to RedState, worthless Senate RINO Mitch McConnell is working on a ‘deal’ with dingy Harry Reid in order to change Senate filibuster rules. This will make it a lot easier for the Senate to pass sweeping gun grabbing legislation. With Weeper Boehner in the House bringing up every bill Democrats demand, it could conveniently pass the house like the crappy ‘fiscal cliff’ and pork laden relief bills did. Few Republicans, and nearly all Democrat votes. With the change in fillibuster rules requiring only 51 votes to pass a bill instead of 60, not only would it be easier to pass, but Democrats up for re-election in 2014 that are in conservative states could vote no.
Harry Reid, through Senate procedure, has kept the first day of business in the Senate going on. This allows the rules of the Senate to be changed with just a majority vote if he decides to claim the Senate’s business does not continue and constitutes itself as a new body every two years (it’s a Parliamentary thing). Meanwhile, behind the scenes Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid are cutting a deal to drastically curtail the filibuster. The left is fully on board and gearing up for this fight because they think they can get gun control through the Senate and other liberal initiatives.
Don’t relax and say, “Oh well, we have the House,” because we may have the House, but John Boehner is in charge of it.
This is serious. Republicans should be prepared to fight as hard as they can and, should the Democrats use the so-called “nuclear” option, grind congress to a halt. Likewise, Senate Democrats should be reminded of the number of seats they have up for re-election in 2014.
