Senate Democrats Channeling Woodrow Wilson In Upcoming Power Grab
"With the Republican Party having the majority in the House come January, we now see a sudden interest in bipartisanship in the media. Even Obama himself has come around, urging lawmakers to work in a spirit of bipartisanship when the new House and Senate reconvene next month.
Yet, a little over a year ago when Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.) locked Republicans out of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee room, the media barely picked up on the story and Obama stood silent.
And, with the Republicans now returning with 47 seats in the Senate, all but guaranteeing the ability to filibuster at any time, we now see a Democrat effort to change the rules."
