Do that. Then ask the folks from New York what they think of her. Chicago? But the fact, she is not supposed to be representing the people of Chicago., she is supposed to be representing the people of Missouri.,

Ask her constituents what they think of her. Ask the voters of Mo what they think of her.

Correction:

Amendments to the senate gun control bill that received majority votes but were still considered rejected were not stopped by filibuster.

Senate democratic leadership for some reason made a deal with the republicans so that 60 votes were necessary to pass anything.

I have no idea why Reid and Durbin and other top democrats would agree to a deal like that.

They had no choice. Rand Paul stated he would filibuster. If he had, he would have talked until they could get the 60 votes to make him stop.,,basically, they agreed that he would filibuster, but they didn't make him talk for the entire time.

I was being sarcastic. I don't think these polls ever existed either. Even though the administration kept saying so
