The Case For Killing The Filibuster

Hugh Hewitt makes a good case for killing the Senate Filibuster. McConnell would have to be serious about fighting Obama's Executive Amnesty, to kill it, in the first place.

From Townhall:

Senate Democrats are using the filibuster to try and embarrass the GOP into backing down on the House's version of a funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, a version which would roll back the president's unconstitutional unilateralism on immigration reform.

Congressional Republicans are trying to put on a show of unity, but the fissures are already evident. The demands from conservative activist leadership and the grassroots' legions for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to invoke "the Reid Rule" and smash what's left of the Senate filibuster using the same procedural maneuver that Harry Reid used to kill the filibuster for judicial nominees on November 21, 2013 are already loud and growing.

Exactly. Trying to play nice with the Democrats, right after they've kicked your teeth in, in the vain hope that they'll start playing nice with you, has never worked, and never will.
