Reid & McConnell Agree to Filibuster Compromise
Fix the Senate Now and its crazy DJ Sen. Merkley have been put in their place and Merkley roundly rebuked for telling influential Dem far-left nutjobs which wobbly Dem Senators to lobby at the Inauguration. For once, Reid displayed a respect for the institution of the Senate and a far-sighted awareness that sooner or later a GOP majority in the Senate might use the FTSN amendment to the rules to harm Dem agenda items. McConnell and Reid have agreed on much in the past, including signing on to Boehner's debt-ceiling proposal [as did Pelosi] to the intransigent doofus sitting in the White House a year ago, thus precipitating the fiscal cliff.
