Liberals want to do away with the filibuster, in the name of “Filibuster Reform,” so they can have complete control over the Senate agenda in the next Congress. Before Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) took over his position as the most powerful member of the Senate, he was against filibuster reform. Now he is for it. The fight for so called Filibuster Reform is merely a “quest for absolute power” by Senator Reid and his liberal allies.
Reid said of the filibuster then – “The filibuster is far from a procedural gimmick. It’s part of the fabric of this institution we call the Senate .. for 200 years we have had the right of extended debate — it’s not some procedural gimmick — some in this chamber want to throw out 214 years of history in the quest for absolute power.” I strongly associate myself with the remarks of the Senator from Nevada then.
Conservatives need to oppose idea of a rules change now that would effectively shut out the voices of individual Senators and shift even more power to Senator Reid. This will be the first battle of 2011.
