Let’s Reqire 75 Votes in the Senate

Harry Reid, 5/4/2010 (from the floor of the Senate)

I also hope we don’t get locked into something that appears to be the order of the Congress around here; that is, everything has to have 60 votes. I can’t speak for everyone, but I will certainly do everything within my power to tell my Senators, let’s just have 50-vote margins. Why do we need to have 60 votes on everything we do around here? It makes it so much more difficult. I believe it is unnecessary.

Hooray for “so much more difficult”!  I say let’s have bigger margins, not smaller.  Don’t pass anything unless it is such a good idea that it is practically uncontested.  Don’t pass any measure unless Democrat and Republican alike look at it and exclaim “Why didn’t we think of this before?”  It’s only difficult to get the votes because most of the country is against the things this Congress is doing.  If they stop it, Senator Reid’s margin problem will simply vanish.

Oh.  I know I’ve said it here before, but if you listen closely to narcissists, they will tell you exactly what they are doing.  It’s a compulsion and they can’t help it.  And all you folks were thinking those were YOUR senators?
