And that is exactly what the unprecedented Republican obstructionalism and massive abuse of that rule is, piracy. It is the theft of the treasure of democracy: civil discourse and deliberation.

The Senate should have dealt with these thieves the same way President Obama dealt with pirates, quickly and decisively.

Now let's get things moving.


Reccord filibuster abuse leads to worst reccord of Senate accomplishment. EVER. 2.8% of introduced bills passed.
