Senate Democrats created majority tyranny

(Continued)

Our Congress is so politically predisposed that in the House of Representatives the votes of the minority party essentially mean nothing. Should the elimination/modification of the filibuster in the Senate expand to include legislation, the votes of the minority party there will also essentially mean nothing.

Then, regardless of which political party happens to be in the majority in the Senate “We the People” could become subjected to the tyranny of the majority.

Reid was correct in 2005 — that is not what the Founders intended!
