Imagine the truth that a man that cannot do his job in congress has now done something that will forever tarnish the constitution if you the voting public do not act to remove this man from office.
Harry Reid must be recalled or removed from office because of breaking the oath of office of the United States Senate.
Today, without warning, Harry Reid acted on the threat he made earlier this year and broke the rules to gut the filibuster.
Reid’s scheme violates over two centuries of precedent and crushes the rights of the minority party by changing the basic rules of the Senate with only 51 votes — ignoring all existing rules and precedents.
By pulling the so-called “nuclear option” Harry Reid will now be able to ram Barack Obama’s radical executive and judicial branch nominations through the U.S. Senate with the slimmest majorities.
Now that the precedent has been set, it’s only a matter of time before these new rules extend to U.S. Supreme Court nominees and all legislation.
Just minutes after Harry Reid’s power grab, union-label Senator Tom Harkin took to the Senate floor and advocated gutting the filibuster for legislation too.
As the sponsor of the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill, Harkin remembers that citizens like you used the filibuster to defeat his scheme to end secret-ballot elections in unionization campaigns.
In fact, over and over again since our founding, the National Right to Work Committee and our members have used the Senate filibuster to keep Big Labor from stealing even more destructive monopoly power.
All of those defensive victories are now in jeopardy.
The next step, as we’ve warned, is to take over the courts.
Harry Reid’s underhanded maneuver paves the way for Barack Obama to pack the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals as revenge for rebuking his unconstitutional “recess” appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
Our constitutional system is based on the bedrock principle that the different branches of government provide checks and balances to protect our liberties and the rule of law.
Today, Harry Reid decimated those checks and balances.
Make no mistake: Your rights as grassroots citizens have been weakened today. And the President and Senate Majority Leader now have unprecedented power.
