Silly people, all of you talking about what the Republicans can do to avert this. You're all just cute in your naivete. This is already a done deal, Reid's just floating the idea because he knows the ONLY thing Republicans can do is what Guy stated above. And THEN he'll use that to paint the reason why we need "reform". And the brain dead that voted for these people will SCREAM FOR JUSTICE FROM THE OPPRESSIVE REPUBLICAN PARTY! There is only one thing to do, folks, because THIS is what is called a coup d'etat. Lock n load folks.

The GOP will do nothing. Harry Reid shows his disregard for Republican Senators because the GOP is made up of marshmellow fluff balls. Mitch and company get no respect because they deserve no respect. There isn't a Republican senator outside of DeMint who has any principals. Using history as an example, Reid is King Edward Longshanks. And the GOP are the cowardly Scottish barons.

Thanks to all the "conservatives" that didn't vote, on principle. Oh, and thanks to all the Paulbots. Both of you are to blame for this.

Lock n load, cause this is gonna get ugly.
