RUSH: Barney Frank — listen to this. This is audio sound bite number 12 on the radio last Friday.
FRANK: We have a serious constitutional problem. It is time to shut it down. It is anti-Democratic. I think we should now be crusading, maybe some Republicans will join us, to amend the rules of the Senate. God didn’t create the filibuster. It’s part of the Senate rules.
RUSH: Oh, now we gotta get rid of the filibuster rule in the Senate. We gotta get rid of 60 votes. Oh, it’s just so damning for the Republicans and the Democrats. The Democrats can’t get anything done. They need 60 votes. And I guarantee if the Republicans ever take back the Senate, if we ever did get rid of 60, they’d change the rule right back to 60. They change the rules in the middle of the game to benefit themselves.
