"This nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power. It is a fundamental power grab."
"…I say to my friends on the Republican side, you may own the field right now, but you won’t own it forever. And I pray God when the Democrats take back control we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing."
