Pay Back Time: Total Trench Warfare Against Trump

Recommended Posts

Republicans obstructed President Obama for eight years, and now Democrats and progressives are planning to pay back the GOP with a trench warfare campaign against Donald Trump.



Politico reported the meeting of the Democracy Alliance:



The meeting is the first major gathering of the institutional left since Trump’s shocking victory over Hillary Clinton in last week’s presidential election, and, if the agenda is any indication, liberals plan full-on trench warfare against Trump from Day One.



Some sessions deal with gearing up for 2017 and 2018 elections, while others focus on thwarting President-elect Trump’s 100-day plan, which the agenda calls “a terrifying assault on President Obama’s achievements — and our progressive vision for an equitable and just nation.”



Democrats remember all of the obstructionist tactics that Republicans used to block their agenda during the Obama years and come January 2017; it’s payback time.



Republicans won the election, and they may control both the House and the Senate, but they do not have the 60 votes needed to pass legislation in the Senate.



Some of the Republican Party’s favorite tricks will now come back to haunt them as party line votes will be the rule in the Senate, Democrats will be using Senatorial holds to block nominees and bills from coming to the floor, and outside using the reconciliation process and requiring a simple majority for judicial nominees, there is very little that Republicans will be able to accomplish legislatively.



The Democracy Alliance conference isn’t a pick me up meeting for the left. It is a serious strategy session.



Trump is going to have to fight and claw for every inch of ground that he gains. The party that spent two terms going out of their way not to work with Obama is about to feel the revenge of Democrats.



Democrats are about to give Republicans a bitter taste of their own medicine.

Senate Democrats took the dramatic step Thursday of eliminating filibusters for most nominations by presidents, a power play they said was necessary to fix a broken system but one that Republicans said will only rupture it further.

 

Democrats used a rare parliamentary move to change the rules so that federal judicial nominees and executive-office appointments can advance to confirmation votes by a simple majority of senators, rather than the 60-vote supermajority that has been the standard for nearly four decades.

 

The immediate rationale for the move was to allow the confirmation of three picks by President Obama to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit the most recent examples of what Democrats have long considered unreasonably partisan obstruction by Republicans.

 

 

In the long term, the rule change represents a substantial power shift in a chamber that for more than two centuries has prided itself on affording more rights to the minority party than any other legislative body in the world. Now, a president whose party holds the majority in the Senate is virtually assured of having his nominees approved, with far less opportunity for political obstruction

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., pushed through a controversial change to Senate rules Thursday that will make it easier to approve President Obama's nominees but threatens to further divide an already polarized Congress.

Fifty-two Senate Democrats and independents voted to weaken the power of the filibuster. The change reduces the threshold from 60 votes to 51 votes for Senate approval of executive and judicial nominees against unanimous GOP opposition. Three Democrats — Sens. Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Carl Levin of Michigan — opposed the change.

The rule change does not apply to Supreme Court nominees, who are still subject to a 60-vote filibuster threshold, or to legislation.

"The American people believe Congress is broken. The American people believe the Senate is broken. And I believe they are right," Reid said Thursday on the Senate floor. "The need for change is so very, very obvious."

The turning point in the decades-long debate over Senate filibuster rules was Republicans' decision to block all three of Obama's latest nominees to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, the nation's second-most-powerful court with vast jurisdiction over federal agencies and regulations.

WITH THIS IN MIND, THE RULES CAN BE CHANGED. Dems will be given their time of dissent. If the rules need to be changed Reid did it first.

Good point!! Dems probably feel so bad they will change it back to the way it was.

I doubt dems missed this in their meeting.

Libbers will go berserk on a rules change. They will conveniently forget the rule change they approved. It will be different now. The rule Reid changed was over 100 years old. Some dems were prudent enough to see that a rule change could BACKFIRE. Now it has backfired. Give adequate time for dissent. Change any rule that slows things down as dems promised they will do.
