McConnell tweets a threat against Senate Democrats
Leader McConnell@LeaderMcConnellToday, I made clear that if Democrats ever attack the key Senate rules, it would drain the consent and comity out of the institution. A scorched-earth Senate would hardly be able to function. It wouldn’t be a progressive’s dream. It would be a nightmare.

We the People know the Republicans have abused Senate rules to an extreme degree, including prominently The Filibuster which McConnell proved could be used to thwart everything for the people and hurtful to the 1%. McConnell should be impeached for that, should have been a long time ago. And his “re-election” in Kentucky, by the way, reeked of questionable vote counts. If McConnell were gone, there would be some second-in-command Rethug Filibusterer in Chief to take his place so….We know that Schumer and company know that the rules must be changed, or there will be another Obama-era style filibuster fiesta by Senate R’s.
