Thanks, Democrats

Everyone should read up on how Harry Reid and the Democrats shot us all in the foot by changing the rules from a super majority to a simple majority in 2013.

To my dismay, I found myself agreeing with Mitch McConnell at the time. He warned that the “nuclear option” would come back to haunt Democrats -likely sooner than they thought.

Here we are waiting for Republicans to vote along the party line to confirm Betsy DeVos, who is wholly unqualified to be Education Secretary. #partyovercountry

Republican obstructionism brought this on, but let’s face the fact that changing the rules is a short-sighted resolution to a problem.

I have to wonder if McConnell will heed his own warning and see that it’s only a matter of time before Republicans no longer have the majority/upper hand.

Side note: How ironic is it that Republicans did all they could to obstruct Obama and are now crying that Democrats are obstructing Trump?
