1. Reid Says Democrats May Act on Own to Curb Filibusters - bloomberg
Reid said that if Democrats and Republicans donít reach agreement on a filibuster plan this week, he will seek to change Senate rules with a tactic that would require 51 votes rather than the usual 67 votes, foreclosing the need for Republican support.
Some Democratic senators such as Jeff Merkley of Oregon and Tom Udall of New Mexico propose requiring senators who want to filibuster a bill to hold the floor and speak until one side gives in.
President Barack Obamaís ability to carry out his second- term agenda could be in jeopardy without a rule change, Merkley told reporters.
but still call!
