I heard a radio discussion on using the nuclear option on the filibuster at least as it pertains to this one time. If they extended the no filibuster rule to all budget bills, I wouldn’t object to it. The worst part is that McConnell is telling the Dems how to pass it through reconciliation (because ultimately he does want the debt ceiling raised) while Schumer is being a whiny li’l bitch about it “Get out of the damn way!” and “We can’t do that in 2 weeks.” to which McConnell’s retort (I’m not claiming it’s true) is “We told you about this starting in July.”
Between McConnell and Schumer, it’s Kentucky Mitch that looks like the real leader in the Senate. Between this and the Afghanistan pullout, I think the Dems need to higher people that know how political optics work.
