Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sun Nov 18, 2012, 01:29 AM

Here is a link to the 'newest' news about The Senate filibuster reform


Here: here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/15/democrats-filibuster-reform_n_2141382.html

I previously posted this on DU here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/1251248689


I decided to repost the article link up above because I just noticed that another DUer is posting some info that to me does NOT look current.

It is the MERKLEY package that is being considered, not the Udall one. Also, Harry Reid has NOT stated what the new rule will be.

Folks are playing guessing games and it looks like misinformation is floating around DU today.

1. Well I'm just grateful they're going to do SOMETHING!

I heard a commentator say the guys in power always want to change it, the minority doesn't, and the majority knows they'll be the minority again some day, so...

It's a tough one.

2. Maybe this time they really mean it.....

..and there had better be near universal support from Democrats. No Blue Dog BS holdouts this time.
