Karma: ‘Nuclear Option’ Rule Pushed by Filthy Harry Reid Could Enable Trump to Appoint Cabinet Without Dem Interference

Sucks when your own tyrannical tactics come back to bite you in the ass.

 

From The Daily Caller

A Senate rule change championed by outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid could leave Democrats powerless to stop any of President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet appointments.

In 2013, Sen. Reid and other Democrats pushed forward with a rule change dubbed the “nuclear option” to eliminate filibusters for all presidential nominations except Supreme Court justices. This means that a simple majority of 51 votes instead of 60 votes is necessary to confirm executive office appointments.

The Republicans are set to enter 2017 with at least 51 senators and can gain another seat with a likely win in the December Senate run-off race in Louisiana.

So while Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile has called for the Senate to reject Trump’s nomination of Republican Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general, Trump’s cabinet will get confirmed as long Republicans vote along party lines.

Reid’s spokeswoman Kristen Orthman told The Washington Post, “Sen. Reid has no regrets on invoking the nuclear option because of Republicans’ unprecedented obstruction.” She added, “If Republicans want to go on record supporting radicals, that’s their decision and they will have to live with it.”

We had to endure all the radical shitbags you rammed through, so expect to have a big butthurt put on your agenda.

Filthy Harry is about to get a taste of his own medicine.
