He’s 100% right. It’s a bizarre, ancient, byzantine rule. And very little that’s really important will get done if they don’ t get rid of it, because the Dems are not interested in doing what’s right for America, they’ re just interested in resistance.

Republican Senate must get rid of 60 vote NOW! It is killing the R Party, allows 8 Dems to control country. 200 Bills sit in Senate. A JOKE!
