I just saw one too many comments of 'the Democrats controlled everything', despite the countless number of times that's been corrected about the abuse of the filibuster.
However 'disciplined' the Republicans are about 'unity', the Democrats are more likely to have a few 'bad guys' who don't play ball with their team, as well.
So, let's review the difference an abused filibuster makes.
I've previously provided a sample out of the hundreds of bills the House under Nancy Pelosi (the best speaker in decades)
Note the bolded. Note especially that the bolded is a bald faced lie. There was no vote. There was no Senate bill. The Senate Democrats never reported the bill out of committee for debate, even though it apparently has complete bipartisan support, yet you present this as Republican misuse of procedural rules. Again, just so we're straight, this is a lie.
Damn Craig, you got your ass handed too you here pal.
