Majority Rules in a Democracy

Obstruction

Only in America is a legislative body voting on a majority-rules basis considered nuclear, something  drastic and unholy. Specifically, the U.S. Senate’s commitment to obstruction protected by the Republican Party.

The GOP, and it’s only one party now, obstructs and blocks anything they don’t like from coming to a vote. If they can’t prevent a vote they want it passed with only six out of ten, and the hell with a simple majority, the Republic and the American people
