I have as much distrust of republicanism as you do Jared.
As much as McConnell (turtleman) washes, scrubs, rinses and repeats, he just can't get the blackness out of legislation Obama signed into law. He was the original Mr. One Term President whitey or cracker leader. Poor ugly bastard. And, I know he'll keep trying like the other crackers will because they can't stand anything good for the people that Obama accomplished on his watch.
Long live Obamacare!
My previous post was geared more towards a general audience and not necessarily yourself. After rereading it, I can see how it may have come across as me being frustrated with you personally. Sorry for that because it certainly wan't my intention.
I agree with you that Republicans are going to continue trying to dismantle not just Obamacare, but any and everything with Obama's name on it. Senate rules are more of a guidance than anything else because a simple majority of the Senate can vote to change any and every rule they want.
If Republicans truly cared about gutting Obamacare and wanted to get around any Democratic opposition then they could simply vote to change reconciliation rules or even vote to get rid of the filibuster entirely. The reason they haven't pulled that trigger yet is they know full well that they aren't going to be a permanent majority and the Democrats would exact their revenge ten fold at a later date.
That's really the only thing keeping them from getting rid of the filibuster. They know that it may give them some short term wins, but will wind up biting them in the ass down the road.
