Letter to the Editor
After being Senate Majority Leader for 7 years Harry Reed finally got rid of the fillibuster rule that has allowed Republicans to hold up important legislation that the majority wanted to pass. I just wish Reed had done the back then. If he had we would have a much better version of Obamacare, we could have had the rich pay their fair share 4 years earlier, and we wouldn’t have had to suffer through government shutdowns.
It doesn’t matter to me if the Democrats had used filibusters in the past as well. The practice is just crazy and I’m glad to see it gone. Or at least partially gone. I’d like to see it killed completely.
