But nationally we see the democrats getting a taste of their own medicine. I am speaking of Trump's Executive Orders tossing out Obama's and Trump's pick of Neil Gorsuch as his pick for the US Supreme Court. Democrat Senators led by New York Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer are now faced with the very things they did to overcome earlier Republican efforts on voting for Judges and others, like Cabinet members. When Republicans fought against the attempts by Obama to appoint leftists to many open judicial seats, the Democrat leader, Harry Reid changed the rules to allow a simple majority to approve. Article One, Section Five of the US Constitution states in part, "Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member."
Here we go folks. The democrats did it to the Republicans and now they are getting their just desserts. And the reason the democrats are forcing this change in voting is their anger at the refusal of the Republicans to allow a vote on Merrick B. Garland for the US Supreme Court. The Obama nomination was done in the election year for the office of President so the Republicans enacted the "Biden" rule on the nomination. When Joe Biden was in the Senate, he said a nomination should not take place or approved in a Presidential Election year. Of course, that was when there was a Republican President. Now the tables are turned and the democrats want to make you think the Biden Rule doesn't matter. More hypocrisy. So there is it, the democrats do their dirty deeds to pursue their agenda and when confronted by the same thing by the Republicans it is all about NO!. The democrats have become the party of NO!
Since America s pretty much a fifty-fifty country politically, I think all the business in the Senate should be a simple majority. We have 52 Republicans now and to allow a arcane rule to get eight democrats to vote our way is not possible. The democrats are unable to be "bi-partisan". Of course, when they are in power they shoved down the throats of America, ObamaCare and many other things. Now they are in the minority and they screech that those wascally Republicans need to be "bi-partisan". And they do their best to lay on the guilt along with their stenographers we once called the press. But thankfully Trump and the rest of the Republicans are finally showing us some guts and are resisting giving in to the lefty's demands. As long as it is only 51 votes for a victory in legislation in the US Senate, we will see lots of good things happening n our federal government.
