Dems – Beware that the Nuclear Option Swings Both Ways


Nuclear Option - Jackass Hypocrisy

John R. Houk

Does anyone remember when both Houses of Congress had a GOP majority? Further does anyone remember that the GOP in Senate was so upset with Dem filibustering preventing GOP nominations from making it to a floor vote that the Senate Majority Leader considered the so-called ‘Nuclear Option’ to break the Dem filibuster? AND does anyone recall how the Dems and Leftist pundits went ballistic after the ‘Nuclear Option’ was considered to get something done with an uncooperative Dem minority?

 

The hypocrisy of the Democrats is coming full circle with them contemplating using the Nuclear Option to get their way over the Republicans when it comes to controversial Leftist nominations and Leftist legislation. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is attempting to change Senate Rules procedurally to render super majority cloture rules ineffective during a filibuster.

 

In this Congressional Session ending the filibuster via the Nuclear Option only would be effective for the Dems in cases of nomination confirmations. The GOP is still the majority in the House of Representatives. As far as legislation is concerned the Dem Senate can go nuclear all they want because the House can block Senate Dem legislation. BUT when it comes to confirming nominees for those Offices the Senate must approve the Nuclear Option would give President Barack Hussein Obama and the Senate Dems absolute power in shoveling through Obama’s radical Leftist nominations.

 

IF HARRY REID FOLLOWS THROUGH with Nuclear Option procedural changes all I have to say is “What goes around comes around”. A time will come around again when the Republican Party (or hopefully a fully endowed Conservative oriented Political Party) will attain at least a slim majority again in the Senate. Let the Dems cry all they want when that day arrives.

 

Senator Rand Paul is circulating a petition pertaining to Harry Reid’s consideration of the Nuclear Option. SIGN IT!

Harry Reid is Going Nuclear

The new Congress convenes on January 22.

And rumors are circulating on Capitol Hill that Harry Reid is scheming to shut up and silence all opposition by using the “nuclear option” to destroy the Senate filibuster.

Should Senator Reid succeed, he’ll be able to RAM Barack Obama’s entire radical agenda into law.

And according to inside counts – he’s only a few votes shy of pulling off this massive power grab.

You and I MUST stop him.

That’s why it’s vital you sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb IMMEDIATELY.

You see, current Senate rules require 67 votes – a two-thirds majority – to shut down debate and change the rules.

And it was designed this way for a reason.

The Senate was intended to be a place where legislation was slowed down.

It was supposed to be the place where amendments were offered, debate was encouraged, and all participated in a process that led to better laws.

But like a bully on the playground, Senator Reid doesn’t give a flip about the rules.

And he believes he has the authority to flat-out ignore the Senate’s parliamentary procedures, long-standing traditions and specific rules in his mad rush for more power.

In short, Senator Reid wants the Majority Party to have the unchecked ability to pass legislation with virtually little to no opposition.

Massive tax hikes. Out-of-control spending. Gun control. Big Labor power grabs. More attacks on our God-given liberties.

We’re talking Harry Reid and Barack Obama having the power to pass anything they can dream up.

Just the thought of it sends shivers down my spine.

That’s why it’s vital you sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb IMMEDIATELY.

Of course, Harry Reid isn’t stupid – he knows exactly what he’s doing. He knows he’s breaking Senate rules if he uses the “nuclear option.”

In fact, back in 2005 Senator Reid correctly argued, “For people to suggest that you can break the rules to change the rules is Un-American.”

The truth is, Senator Reid just doesn’t care.

And he’s willing to destroy the unique characteristics of the Senate simply to get his way.

That’s why it’s vital you sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb IMMEDIATELY.

And if at all possible, along with your signed Fax Bomb, I hope you’ll agree to make a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 – or whatever you can afford.

Your generous contribution will help RAND PAC flood the offices of vulnerable, fence-riding U.S. Senators with faxes DEMANDING they vote against Harry Reid’s attempt to use the “nuclear option” to seize total power.

John, I know times are tough, but this is one fight you and I can’t afford to lose.

There’s just too much at stake.

It’s critical you and I defeat Harry Reid’s attempt to seize total control of the U.S. Senate.

So please, sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb, and agree to make your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 – or whatever you can afford – IMMEDIATELY.

Time is running out to mobilize millions of Americans to this fight.

So please don’t delay. Act NOW!

In Liberty,

 

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. When the new Congress convenes on January 22 – Harry Reid is expected to use the “nuclear option” to seize total control of the U.S. Senate.

Should he succeed, he’ll be able to RAM Barack Obama’s entire radical agenda into law – with little to no opposition.

So please, sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb, and agree to make your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 – or whatever you can afford – IMMEDIATELY.
