Unfortunately, I agree with all of you that this will lead to more "do nothing". One theory is that Harry Reid is worried about the gun interests in Nevada, if so I sure wish he had found a way to deal with them that didn't condem us to 2 more years of filibusters. emoticon

Here is an article about it...personally, I don't expect much work from either sides the next four years...this just helps them do nothing....

Today's announcement of the McConnell-Reid deal on filibuster reform is very disappointing. I feel sold-out by Reid. This ensures more deadlock.

Well after his public embarrassment maybe he'll take some time to "regroup" out of sight

They should make anyone who wants to filibuster stand on the floor of the Senate and talk. These silent filibusters drive me crazy.

I yearn to see changes in the present filibuster policy..it's so stupid and lazy I cannot even fathom it's existnce.

Addendum..trust GOP to shoot themselves in the foot..they've being doing it for four years or more now..'tis habit that has obvious gone from the rdiculous to the sublime.
