  •  I don't think the GOP owns this, Reid and (3+ / 0-)

    his long-serving allies do.  From what I've read out of their mouths, the GOP senators are proud of their votes; they're not worried that they failed.  They are representing their rural, low-population states on this issue.  Remember that there was a majority in favor of the amendment, and it went down in defeat.  With the history of GOP obstruction of the past four years, there was no excuse for not getting rid of their ability to dam the works on every single piece of Democratic-favored legislation that would come before them.  This has to be fixed before we replace the next Supreme Court justice, or we'll have Citizens United-type decisions on every important issue, and no way to fight it.  When faced with the gradual, clear destruction of the middle class, of the rights of citizens, of the running of elections, of women's rights, etc., etc., these stupid Democratic senators have to forget their clubbiness and seize the power they were elected to hold.
