True, but dems are nuts for Pandering to a bunch of illegal lawbreakers and open borders lovers. this is just a really bad idea. They now look like the party of anti-Americans.

I said the democrats changed the rules first to confirm lower court judges.

I am absolutely right.


But no one pushed the proverbial button until 2013, when then-Majority Leader Harry Reid invoked the nuclear option to lower the 60-vote threshold to 51 for approval of Executive Branch appointees (such as Cabinet secretaries) and federal judges below the Supreme Court (such as for U.S. Courts of Appeal).

Reid justified the move by citing unprecedented obstruction from Senate Republicans, but members of both parties lamented the precedent it set.

Last week, Sen. Chuck Schumer, who took over for Reid as leader of Senate Democrats, said he regrets going nuclear four years ago. Of course, Schumer could just be saying that now that he’s in the minority, since there are plenty of clips of Reid and McConnell opposing the nuclear option before they supported it.

I find this amusing.

"we need to prevent the fake news making this look like it's republican's fault"

"you need 60 votes to pass this legislation" (cites fake news as source of filibuster incoming"


So wrapped around yourselves you couldn't find your asshole without a map.

The illegal law breakers were brought here as children they had no choice in the matter.
Don't you know what the dream act is?

I find people amusing that can listen to every politician and media outlet discuss the dems being able and wiling to shut this down but still pathetically argue they are not threatening a filibuster.

I didnt say fake news did, I?

I said they will spin the news of what is happening to blame the republicans.

I'm still waiting for names. Which Democrat(s) is/are going to filibuster?

At this point, all Democrats need to do to 'block' the legislation is... not vote for it.

Republicans don't have the votes to pass it alone.

I believe that this is the first time that congress has threatened a government shutdown unless the government agrees to NOT enforce laws that were passed by congress.

immigration laws were passed by congress, correct?
and now some members of congress are threatening to hold the American people hostage until the government agrees to NOT enforce the immigration laws that congress themselves passed.
I`m pretty sure that`s not how you legally get laws changed in a democratic republic.
