1. What reform?

Did you really believe that story? It'll either remain the same or it'll be a watered down version....

3. Reid is trying to forge a bi-partisan plan so they can do it without using the 51 vote

'nuclear option'. He's using the trick of recessing to extend the first senate day to last indefinitely
so they have more time to either reach a compromise or use the 51-vote option.

5. If Harry Reid can't get filibuster reform through...

he should remind McConnell that the Dems can filibuster just as well as Republicans and they are willing to filibuster EVERY BILL that comes out of the GOP House if McConnell doesn't back off on his filibuster abuse.
