Dem Senator: I’m kinda regretting nuking the filibuster on presidential appointments « Hot Air

When Harry Reid and the rest of the Senate Democrats teamed up three years ago to nuke the filibuster on presidential appointments, Republicans warned them they’d live to regret it. Now that day has arrived, and Chris Coons tells CNN’s Kate Bolduan he does regret it — mainly because, as Republicans tried to tell Democrats, they have no way of stopping a Republican president from appointing “extreme” nominees to key positions. Coons, who is trying to block Jeff Sessions’ nomination as Attorney General, says that Republicans need to help him and other Democrats out now.

Politicians have *really* high discount rates, I've noticed. They shouldn't be in charge of anything.

That's because their shakedowns work only while they are still in office.
