“Nobody’s talking about reconciliation,” Harry Reid said yesterday at Oba-kabuki.
So, er, what’s this? Why, it’s Dick “Nobody” Durbin launching an online petition to kill the filibuster and lower the threshold for cloture to a simple majority. Thunders Durbin:
It’s time to end the filibuster
The American people are sick of process blocking progress. They’re fed up with an arbitrary tradition that allows a minority of Senators to prevent popular, much-needed legislation from even coming to a vote.
Frankly, so am I.
Please sign this petition to my colleagues in the Senate, supporting the Harkin-Shaheen proposal or other similar proposals to eliminate the crippling 60-vote requirement to overcome a filibuster.
Don’t worry. “Nobody” but the nutroots are putting their names on it.
