I don't care if it is a power grab by Reid. I believe any rule that does an end run around the Constitution should be abolished. The Constitution spells out exactly how bills are supposed to be voted on and it says that bills pass with just a simple majority and that ties are broken by the VP. Allowing the Senate to bypass the Constitution by requiring a super-majority before the bill even gets voted on should NOT be allowed. If Romney had won and had 51 Senators then I would hope he would have went nuclear to get rid of the filibuster rule so that Obamacare could be repealed. Just because my side lost doesn't make me change my mind about the need to follow the Constitution.
