Now is the time for all Democrats and Republicans to demand action by the House

We can not stand an obstructionist House anymore, no more than we could in the Senate.

Harry has been clear in his desire to modify the rules for Filibuster, not eliminating it but putting some teeth into it. Make them stand and speak, let them stand and speak as long as they care, but in the end they must sit down and vote - that is what I say and it apparently what Harry has in mind.

Now on to the House. They simply can not be allowed to rubber stamp and send to the Senate bills that are little more than ideological statements of faith, they must get serious about their work or face the wrath of every voice in the Democratic Party from the Oval Office to the floor of the Senate and across the airways and cable channels everywhere. If these damned people must be shamed into action, then we must do it.

They have got away with their nonsense for far too long and right now, while the election is hot in everone's memories is the time for action. Lame Duck or no, the work has to begin now.

1. lets not kid ourselves

the republicans exist in their own reality and nothing can be done until democrats gain 51% in the house. Lets not fool ourselves, the fight must be fought at the state level so gerrymandered safe GOP districts are changed back

no amount of reason debate will sway the ideologues
