Letter to the Editor
At the beginning of this year Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reed had the opportunity to end the filibuster and allow majority rule in the Senate. But that didn’t happen again in part because it wasn’t supported by senators Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein from California. Today gun background checks again didn’t get a vote because Democrats support the procedural blocks that Republicans use to black good legislation. At any time the Democrats could choose to stop the filibuster rule but they don’t do it. So they can’t blame the evil Republicans when they enable them through the filibuster. Both parties stand in the way of the will of the people for their own selfish purposes.
