The public is fed up, time for the senate to change the rules to simple majority vote on all bills to stop holdover by the minority

By Dr. Orly Taitz, ESQ

Presidents change every 4 or 8 years, majorities in congress change, however the public is frustrated as most of the campaign promises are not fulfilled by either party. It seems nothing is ever done.

Why is it happening? The answer is simple: filibuster rule in the senate. Legislation pass the house with the simple majority. However, in the senate most bills face a filibuster, and 60 votes are needed to brake the filibuster.

Well, the truth is that a simple majority of 51 can abolish the filibuster rule for any type of votes or all votes. This was done by Harry Reid and Democrats in relation to all votes for District and Appellate federal judges. Similarly, it was done by Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in relation to the Supreme Court judges and that is how Neil Gorsuch got on the Supreme Court.

Well, now it seems, it is time to extend this abolishment of the filibuster to all bills, particularly the funding of the government bills, and implement all the agenda and all the promises made to the voters.

Now, some would say, this would mean that the Democrats will pass all of their agenda when they will have the presidency and both houses of Congress. My answer is: this may be so, but it would show the public what the parties are really doing and how it affects the voters, how this implemented agenda effects their lives and their pocketbooks. We would not have a stalemate.

The public would be able to see how the Republican agenda affects them without the filibuster and   then the public will see how the Democrat party agenda affects them and the public will vote in the future based on what the actions by the parties are and not empty promises.

Currently we have a stalemate. Democrats are blackmailing the Republicans that if amnesty is not given to 800,000 illegal aliens, Democrats will shut down the US government. A ruling majority should not allow the minority to blackmail it. Time for the Republicans to show some spine and say no. Let the Democrats shut down the government. The public will be livid and will kick many Democrats out of office in November based on this stunt. After a few weeks of the shout down, the Republican will need to announce that the GOP senate majority is abolishing the filibuster rule, hopefully for all bills, or at least for the government funding bills. Time to act!

Enough is enough!

    The 60-vote cloture rule flies in the face of “THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED”, which is generally understood to mean the consent of a simple majority(50% + 1), not the consent of a super-majority(60%).

    The Framers apparently agreed, as they required only a simple majority to terminate debate in the Senate during the early years of our Republic.

    And yet, for some very strange reason, there isn’t one current senator who openly opposes the 60-vote rule.

    I strongly suspect that very strange reason has everything to do with the interests of K Street, and absolutely nothing to do with the interests of the American people.

    Follow the money folks. Always follow the money.

    Actually constitution is quite clear about super majorities. We are not a democracy we are not a majority rules society we are a representative republic and that is all that we are. If you don’t like it get out we will happily revoke your citizenship and dump you in the first third world country we can think of where you will probably be dead in 24 hours. It is supposed to be difficult for Congress to do anything on purpose. We only need things undone at this point

    @ W

    The Constitution is “quite clear” about super majorities being required for treaties, amendments, overriding presidential vetoes and removing presidents from office. It says absolutely NOTHING about super majorities being required to end debate in the Senate, which is why you could not cite it.

    Furthermore, the Declaration of Independence is quite clear about “THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED” – A.K.A. a simple majority(50% +1) – not the consent of a super majority(60%).

    Last time I checked, getting 3 separate bodies of government – the House, the Senate & the White House – to agree on anything is a very “difficult” and infrequent achievement.

    Nice try W. Try again.

    Also, the big question is:…

    Why hasn’t McConnell forced this issue to become the norm?????
