We've been hearing a lot about the filibuster lately and if you're anything like we are, you may just need a refresher course on what it is and what it can and can't do.
And why the rules should or shouldn't be changed.
What ever they decide to do about the filibuster, we hope they choose wisely.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I can't see that term without thinking of the gorgeous Jimmy Stewart as Mr Smith when he went to Washington... hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx
Thank you. I do need a refresher.ReplyDelete
It is not pawsible for anyone on "the hill" to choose wisely anymore. Sorry.ReplyDelete
I'll have to read these even though Pop explained it the other day. First the Dems changed the rules and it wound up hurting them. Then Moscow Mitch did whatever best suited him and now he's crying foul cos Schumer is following his lead. One side changes the rules to suit this but it always comes back to bite them on the rear.ReplyDelete
Well, it is Friday already, and we love Joe, but the fact checkers are finding out little glitches in his news meeting. I want him to be totally transparent and NOT like the predecessor....I can't imagine listening to Republicans talking for 24 hours in a filibuster. It is out of date and should be abolished. It comes from the time of slavery! When will these guys wise up?ReplyDelete
