If a filibuster is that important to Republicans, why not add one to the House?
The GOP freakout over the partial elimination of the Senate filibuster has reached epic proportions, with Republicans pretending that the end of the Republic has arrived because their precious "minority rights" have been eliminated.

It's really heart-warming seeing conservatives stand up and fight for "minority rights", but talk is cheap. So here is a proposal:

Dear GOP,

If you care so much about minority rights, do something about it!

So you know that thing where you let your tiny teabagger fringe block things with majority House support like immigration reform, sensible gun regulations, and even routine budget resolutions? All you need to do is extend those rights to non-Tea Party groups in the House.

That's right, if the filibuster is that important to you, add one to the House. Problem solved! Glad I could help.

Hugs and kisses, kos

If the Senate won't deliver the undemocratic obstruction options Republicans so desperately pretend to want, they shouldn't just cry about it, they should take action! Your move, Orange Man.
