Harry Reid is trying to castrate filibuster protections

ALERT: Dictator Harry Reid is pushing a new rule to give liberals carte blanche power to pass any bill they want – whether the American people like it or not!

It’s obvious Harry Reid didn’t get the message in November. Instead, he’s launching a colossal power grab that will make it impossible for the GOP to filibuster many cases like liberal Supreme Court nominations. Reid’s pushing to change the filibuster rules this week to a simple majority of 51 instead of the original two thirds. This rule change would also make it easier for Dems to ram legislation through the Senate.

The liberals must be plotting to drop some pretty big legislative bombs on the new Congress, or they wouldn’t be itching to gag the opposition.  Hopefully, they don’t have an ObamaCare 2 up their sleeve. Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said, “It would forever change the nature of the Senate and constitute a naked partisan power grab. Such a move would disrespect our bipartisan system and the will of the American people.”

Reid Relentless Bullies GOP

Harry Reid is a bully and Congress is his playground. Too bad it’s not lunch money he’s after. Whenever a Republican tries to accomplish something, Reid just grabs one of his gang members to harass the lawmaker until they go away. If that doesn’t work, he’ll manipulate the rules of Congress until he can figure out a way to destroy his opposition.

That’s no way for our elected officials to act. Our founding fathers fought against the tyranny of British rule to create a Democracy where our country is governed by its citizens; not a single person. Harry Reid clearly missed that history lesson. The founders of our country created Congressional rules to protect us from the abuse of power. Unfortunately, Reid’s pretty good at finding a way around the rules.

Reid: Republicans Can’t Have Input On Legislation

Reid is using his power to block Republican contributions on all legislation. He’s “filling the tree” (stuffing legislation full of liberal amendments, which prevents Republicans from having any real input). Why would Republicans vote for something when they’ll be blocked from giving their two cents? The liberals keep calling the GOP the party of no. Well, someone needs to stand up and say NO to the liberal’s backhanded legislative grabs.

Reid: It’s My Way Or The Highway

Blocking Republicans from participating in legislation or debates isn’t something new for Reid. It’s his tried and true way of making sure things go his way. Reid has a long history of cutting Republicans out of debates and thwarting conservative legislation. No Washington doesn’t seem to accomplish anything that helps our country. Reid loves using the process of cloture to swiftly end debates before they even have a chance to begin.

Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said, “My Democratic counterpart in the Senate, Harry Reid, has played quarterback, setting records for the number of times he has blocked Republicans from having any input on bills, cut off our right to debate and bypassed the committee process in order to write bills behind closed doors.”

According to The Congressional Research Service (CRS), “[Reid] has done this nearly three times more times more, on average, than the previous six majorities. In fact, the current majority in its two Congresses in power has moved to end debate on measures a total of 29 times prior to any amendments even being voted on. The previous majority did this less than half as often—only 12 times in the preceding two Congresses.”

If Harry Reid has his way, all a piece of legislation will need to become law is a liberal rubber stamp. We’ve seen the consequences of the liberal rubber stamped ObamaCare. Enough is enough. We must stop Harry Reid before it’s too late.
