Welch and others call on Reid to act

Rep. Peter Welch, D-VT, and 32 other members of the House have sent a letter of complaint to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid asking him to do something about the "silent filibuster."

The group argues that silent filibusters bottle up legislation and prevent debate on important issues. From the House perspective, there are more than 200 important bills passed by the House but stuck in the Senate.

Check out the letter here.

Anybody think the rules of operation for the U.S. Senate need a rewrite? Anybody think it will happen?

No and no...
Was Welch (and the rest of the leftwing moonbats) whining about the filibuster BEFORE 2009?
The Democrats in the senate killed many a Bush proposal, and appointment, by...wait for it: the filibuster.
Just more intellectual dishonesty (what a surprise) from the usual suspects.
