There is no reason to make it difficult for republicans, they can choose to support the middle class any time they want. They can choose to support veterans or continue to harm them. They can choose to protect the environment or risk your child's life with toxic waste. They can choose to worship Grover Norquist or disavow torture and love God. They can follow a talk radio doctor shopper or the example of Theodore Roosevelt, the Roosevelt who also left the republican party that had disgraced themselves.
Should the Democrats vote to remove the filibuster if the Republicans take the Senate?
