Has anyone else noticed but me, it seems the Democrats are all about rushing through their agenda without anyone having the time to bring it out in to sunshine of day.
It is you will love it once you find out what is in it, Nancy Pelosi. It is this total disregard for Americans and our desire to know. Politicians pushing their agenda,believing,we are all cattle. The Progressive thought is American, are stupid and need to be nudged or pushed into something they believe, we do not undertand.
Americans are smarter then progressive believe, we are. Remember you are only free as Americans, as long as you protect your freedoms from politicians desire to enslave you to their agenda.

Not sure where YOU went to school but in mine, 60% majority. It's 51%. Like it used to be 66 to have cloture. The party of one idea(TAX CUTS!) deserves this!

But don't read the ACTUAL article, lol

It's ALSO this:

"The two Senators want to eliminate the practice known as a “hold” in which a single Senator can secretly prevent action on legislation or nominees."

Ideologue!

If they want the Senate to Work better, Democrats should Resign.

It's laughable how they want to change the rules to give more power to their shrinking, shrieking and Stinking majority.

The last thing voters want is some Fast Food like Senate that spits out Bad Product even Faster than before.

If anything, we want it slowed down to where there's true deliberation and thought given. The last Senate was a complete joke. Smart people don't want dummycrats rigging the rules.

Great Point Sue.

Democrats flat out admitted in Public that they Don't Read the Bills and now want to speed things up? What a terrible Joke. More proof that Democrats are Filthy Scum.

Why do these idiots think their only job is to pass more laws? Why don't they try to manage the institutions that they are responsible for managing.

Barney Frank and Chris Dodd were responsible for the management of US banks, Fannie, and Freddie before the economic collapse. They failed as supervisors. THEIR ANSWER!!! Pass more laws.

Odummy and Congress are both responsible for securing our boarders. Instead of securing the boarders, they spent a year passing an odummycare bill that no one understands and is an abortion.

Both the House and Senate are responsible for managing military spending. We can all see how that goes every year.

These idiots need to learn how to manage; they need to learn how to inspect what they expect instead of passing more crappy laws.

Yep.....just run some $hit through there and get the hell back home.....

Nothing important going on anyway.....?????

I am sooooooooo sick and flucking fed up with america's government and leadership....

americans have every moral and human right to resist and rebel against this government.

government (at all levels),wall street and big business will not be satisfied or stop screwing over americans until there is widespread killing in america.

Haste makes waste. I agree with Sue. The Health Care Bill was about 2000 pages long and an addendum of about 300 pages was added in the wee hours of Christmas Eve morning. Even if a Senator were bound and determined to read every single word, it would be humanly impossible. For once, Nanny Pelosi was right on the mark: "Pass the bill so we can find out what's in it."

To paraphrase another old saying, "Act in haste; repent in leisure." There are quite a few former hotshots spending more "quality time with their families" while they contemplate their fall from power. Specter, Carney, Kanjorski...and the list goes on.

Actally here is what transpired....
The U.S. was ruled by the people. They were legally defined as "soverign" over all things pertaining to U.S. governing.
Enter Lincoln, who took our "soverignety" and replaced it woth a "Republic State", which usurped our soverignety. This than began a "democracy", which gave the states soverignety over the people yet the States, are subject to Federal authority.
Which has led to current political state. A corporate obligharcy, that enforces it's rule of law, by a now, legal para-military police state.
Then in 2006, the Fuhrrer Bush jr. signed into law, Americas first Martial law's. The Military commision act of 2006. Bush than had the Joint Chiefs of Staff assign the first ever, active military combat units, deployed to American soil. Now we have at least 16 active military combat units deployed in the U.S. The Un-unites States is officially and legally under Martial Law.

Game over.
