re: #121 Belafon

I’m not entirely a fan either, but all Democrats will be able to do is investigate if we don’t. McConnell and the GOP have declared war on our democracy. Until we beat them down and get rid of the current congressional “norms” like the Hastert rule, and prevent the Senate Majority leader from blocking legislation, we are going to have to be more aggressive there.

They can also appoint judges, since the standard filibuster rule has been discarded for that process.

Is the Hastert rule in effect when Democrats are in control? It’s just a mechanism that Republicans use to keep popular legislation from consideration in the House.
