re: Schumer says he'll block Supreme Court nominees - ChineseBandit58
[quote]That isn't an option the House has nothing to do with Supreme Court nominations, those members don't get a vote.[/quote] Of course not. But the Senate can add the amendment to a House Bill and then send it to reconciliation. That is what Reid pulled in the Obamacare fiasco. ...

re: Schumer says he'll block Supreme Court nominees - ChineseBandit58
[quote]You still have to get past the filibuster and 60 votes are needed for that.[/quote] Hell - all they have to do is attach a statute in a house-originated tax related bill and then send it to 'reconciliation' to get a majority vote. Didn't the DEMs use the tactic for a lot of their stuff whe...

re: Why are liberals suddenly concerned about accuracy? - ChineseBandit58
[quote]What is ignored is that the first part of the tantrum was completely justified over the MLK bust. An idiot reporter spewed out something false with the intent to stir racial animus and Spicer was correct to be hot.[/quote] Exactly - if he had limited his response to that it would have been g...
