Log Cabin Republicans Blast Harry Reid & Senate Dems for “Nuclear Option”

Log Cabin Republicans Blast Harry Reid & Senate Dems for “Nuclear Option”

Nov 21, 2013

Today Democrats in the United States Senate, pushed by Majority Leader Harry Reid, invoked the so-called “nuclear option,” doing away with filibusters for most presidential nominations.

“Harry Reid and his rank-and-file members laid bare their governing philosophy today: ‘If you don’t like the rules, change them!” Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo stated. “This isn’t simply an historic shift; it changes the Senate’s dynamic as the nation’s highest deliberative body, and could have implications far beyond presidential nominations. With today’s power-grab, Harry Reid has razed any goodwill that was building among Senate Republicans to work in respectful bi-partisanship. I’m just happy the Senate passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act two weeks ago, because any incentive for Republicans to work with Senate Democrats on LGBT issues moving forward has just been obliterated.”
