Reports started to trickle down last week after a GOP meeting behind closed doors of a great divide among Republican senators on whether or not to restore the filibuster for judicial nominees when they take back the majority, undoing the so-called “nuclear option” deployed by Democrats when they were in the majority. “Senate Republicans feud over whether to keep nuke option,” read The Hill’s headline. But the internal feud does not make much sense.
I’m a simple man, so perhaps that is why I don’t understand why there should be a feud among them. It seems fairly clear that those senators who desire to bring back the filibuster should be talking to the Democrats. Were not Democrats the ones who changed the rules?
