    It's all fun and games until the other party is at the helm and they use your rules against you. How about no.

    Why bother with Congress at all? Just let him rule by presidential decree executive order?

    EXACTLY, there is supposed to be some level of balance.

    are you speaking about Trump or the Dems as IIRC they leveraged the whole nuclear option years ago. Guess they don't like it when the shoes on the other foot.

    I hope the Senate does this so that the GOP alone owns the ensuing mess. Please, oh please....

    For nominations, that were being held up by a refusal to even give hearings to those nominees.

    If you're going to point out comparisons go ahead and point out apt ones.

    I posted his tweet in another thread.

    Apparently he doesn't like that he can't get what he wants done (winning) so he wants to change the rules so he stops losing.

    Go ahead and lower the threshold for political suicide. I’m onboard.

    The irony is the first people to be negatively impacted by his proposed economic policies are the idiots who put him in office.

    Yeah how about no, there's a reason why that's in place. If power grab is the underlying cause for all this then we're screwed. He just wants to take the easy way out or let others deal with it.

    Yeah, how about that. I wonder why that is...

    Guess he's going for a full party dictatorship.

    You know, just like his favorite country, Russia.

    He can change the rules, but he'll still always be a loser.

    Yes. But as we know - running a business is not the same as running a country. Is there any hope Trump has remotely realized this yet?

    political suicide? congress would LOVE it if it happened and people would stop paying attention if it did, Obama ruled by EO's because congress already refuses to work.

    I think people are a little wiser now. It’s hard for politicians to hold a town hall meeting now without people going ballistic, and maybe I’m getting it from slanted news sources (never the mainstream media) but I have yet to see a town hall with people being mad Trump is being obstructed.

    As much as you hate to rag on Obama, I think he was the nail in the coffin of people sleeping their way through politics, and it’s not just Democrats. That's a positive result.
