03/21/2005: Broken Rules
Minority Rules by Iain Duncan Smith (Member of Parliament for Chingford and Woodford Green - England) is a very good op-ed contributor piece in the NY Times about the GOP proposal of whether to do away with filibusters by changing Senate rules - the so-called "nuclear option" to prevent Senate Filibusters by the minority party [currently Democrats].
It also ties in very well with the GOP lack of ethical considerations going on of late in the House of Representatives -- and our very own Dennis Hastert's efforts in that regard. Shame on you Denny!
Read this statement from Fred Wertheimer (Pres. Democracy 21) about this "Broken Rules" process at US News Wire.
