The "Nuclear Option" was Never About a Fiilibuster

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Nor was it about using the Vice Presidential vote to break a tie.

The "Nuclear Option" was never about a filibuster. It was about the buried story, and whooly corrupt and unholy suggestion by Trent Lott to use the Vice President to NOT CONVENE THE SENATE. The Storm Thurmon accolade scandal was a cover for removing Lott, as Senate Majority Leader, for his "Nuclear Option" suggestion.

And, no. It was not about using the the Vice President, who is also the President of the Senate, to cast the deciding vote.

I am tired of the MSM using the NO word for Fillibuster, or the VP vote when it was a far more dubious suggestion.
