Quote of the Day II

Bring it on, H8Rs, but Ithink this might be more important than Sen. Cruz's legislative proposals.

The best mechanism we have for working through our differences and arriving at a durable consensus is the Senate. An executive order can't do it. The fiat of a nine-person court can't do it. A raucous and precarious partisan majority in the House can't do it. The only institution that can make stable and enduring laws is the only one we have in which all 50 states are represented equally, and where every single senator therefore has a say in the laws we pass here If America is to meet the challenges we face, he concluded, we will need the Senate the Founders in their wisdom intended, not the hollow shell of the Senate we have today. -- Presumptive Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R KY)

Dang! Almost HOSS-worthy. BUT, actions are more expensive than talk. Or something.

Serious and tough question: should the 114th reinstate the supermajority rules that Sen. Reid abolished? I am leaning toward yes, reinstate the Republic.

It's an easy question in my mind. It's the same one faced by one General George Washington, when he was offered the chance to be the King of the United States.
