Harry (the Grinch) Reid, circa 2008, on the thought of Republicans changing the rules of the Senate to create a simple majority requirement to break a filibuster:
“What the Republicans came up with was a way to change our country forever,” Reid stated. “We would in fact have a unicameral legislature where a simple majority would determine everything that happens … the Senate was set up to be different. That was the genius, the vision, of our Founding Fathers.”
Harry (the Grinch) Reid, on the eve of the arrival of that shellacking 112th Congress:
“…Reid held a closed-door meeting last week in which he said he may by a simple majority change the rules, including Rule 22, on the first day of the 112th Congress.”
