Repost from Townhall.
Remember that deal that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made in October, allowing Democrats to raise the debt ceiling? Well, it’s that time of year again for these so-called deals. On Thursday night, the Senate voted 59-34 to pass legislation that would do away with the filibuster, specifically when it comes to raising the debt ceiling.
Republicans voting in favor included Sens. John Barrasso (WY), Roy Blunt (MO), Richard Burr (NC), Shelley Moore Capito (WY), Susan Collins (ME), John Cornyn (TX), Joni Ernst (IA), Mitch McConnell (KY), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rob Portman (OH), Mitt Romney (UT), John Thune (SD), Thom Tillis (NC), and Roger Wicker (MS).
Predictably, this led to a suggestion that the filibuster be nuked in other instances.
