Senate Filibusters Legislation to End FilibusteringAs criticism mounts over legislative gridlock it appears the Senate is poised to filibuster legislation that would end filibustering. In the most impressive display of bipartisanship since the opposition to health care, Senate Republicans and Democrats are teaming up in an effort to stop the legislation dead in its tracks.
Republican Senators complained, “We need the filibuster if we are to continuing campaigning as the party for smaller government and fiscal responsibility. Without it, there is no one to blame when we expand government and increase deficits. It also provides valuable face time for us to perform on our soap box for voters. Without the free press we wouldn't have the funds to travel to exotic junkets and pamper ourselves. What would we do then? Craft legislation?"
Senate Democrats toed the party line stating, “We fought tooth and nail to pass partisan legislation the majority of Americans didn't want. We aren't in the business of making it easier to repeal it all. We may lose seats in the short term but our big government agenda is funding a whole new generation of poor dependent Democratic voters. We'll be back before you know it.”
Americans are left wondering if anyone in the Senate actually cares about our flagging economy, crushing unemployment numbers, record deficits, bloated entitlements, conflicts abroad, and immigration woes. Here at Rancor News “We Report, We Decide.” The answer is no. No one in the Senate cares. We don't want these guys doing anything fast anyway. They don't have time to read legislation as it is.
