I am sick of all the talking heads saying that the Republicans have both houses of Congress and the presidency and therefore they are to blame for not fixing Obamacare. As I’ve said repeatedly, because of the stupid filibuster rules in the Senate, they need 60 votes to do anything. Instead of arguing about what can fit into “reconciliation”, it’s time for the nuclear option. Get rid of the stupid filibuster rules and use the nuclear option. Make the Senate subject to majority rule, as it should be. The will of the voters should not be thwarted by stupid rules that are not required by the constitution.
Now to be honest the Republicans are to blame because they only need 51 votes to change the rules like they did for Supreme Court nominees and Harry Reid did for all other presidential nominees. But I want to see conservative talking heads to get real and start hammering on the nuclear option. As I’ve said before, this is a rare opportunity, maybe once in a lifetime, to undo the damage done by multiple swamp creature administrations on both sides of the aisle.
