Harry Reid Gets Set to Take a Flamethrower to Republican Obstruction

Harry Reid is fed up and he’s not going to take it anymore.

Calling out Republicans for wasting six weeks on contracpetion in the highway bill and filibustering at will, Reid said he is going to reform the filibuster rules. He also made it quite clear that the American people want the rich to pay more in taxes and we need revenue.

Watch here:

Harry threw down the gauntlet, “How about six weeks on contraception in the highway bill, do they remember that?”

Asked if he has plans to address the filibuster rules, Harry said, “Yes, I do. I’ve said so publicly and I continue to feel that way. I think that the rules have been abused and we’re going to work to change them. We’re not going to do away with the filibuster but we’re going to make the Senate a more meaningful place.”

Yes, meaningful, as in, getting the people’s work done at long last.

Harry Reid is done playing games with the little boys on the Republicans side of the aisle. Our bet here is that he’s going to reform the filibuster so that Republicans can’t just declare it and leave to go golfing/drinking/looking for another American segment of the population whose civil rights they can cut.

He will also probably cut the number of votes required to defeat a filibuster to 51 or 53, allowing the Democrats elected by the people to do the work they were sent to DC to do.

Republicans may not be good at math, but Harry Reid is. He knows that Dems don’t have as many seats to defend for another 6 years, whereas Republicans do.

After four years of petulant, blind GOP obstructionism, Reid isn’t the man he was five years ago. He is going to take a flamethrower to Republican obstructionism. The Senate will finally be functional again, and taxes will be raised on the top 2% in the Senate. If the House wants to label themselves the defender of the rich denying a tax cut to the middle class, by all means, proceed, Republicans. Proceed.

Elections have consequences my friends. And these consequences we like.
