  •  Destroy the Senate (6+ / 0-)
    . . .there was another effort just at the beginning of this Senate to do away with 60 votes and [go] back down to 51, which in my view would have destroyed the Senate.
    I'm still trying to wrap my brain around this one. The simple majority rule around which the Senate was originally designed would "destroy the Senate"?

    •  If you understand the Senate (0+ / 0-)

      As a place where one man can hold up the entire business of the United States, and thus is given access to immense wealth and power, then yes, I guess it would destroy the Senate.
