Default We all need to watch what is happening in the Senate

Folks,

This is from the Washington Examiner. The basis is they're the elite are trying to put an end to the filibuster that holds up legislation. They want to use the simple majority vote of 51 to pass legislation from the Senate.

Trust is earned and not given away, it seems Sen. McCain and Sen Levin are not trustworthy

Stealth scheme to pass gun bans in the works in Congress

http://www.examiner.com/article/stealth-scheme-to-pass-gun-bans-the-works-congress?CID=examiner_alerts_article

In this case, GOA director Larry Pratt stated that U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is secretly working with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to change Senate rules so that a simple majority of 51 votes would be all that is necessary to pass the gun bans. McCain is reportedly working with U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., to prevent the filibuster from holding up the legislation, which U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., vowed to to use to prevent any new gun ban legislation.

McCain and Levin are also working secretly to change the rules so that gun ban legislation could be easily added to any bill being considered in conference, and then when it is presented on the Senate floor it must be voted upon on an "as is" basis with no changes.

Another stealth measure McCain and Levin are attempting to weasel through the Senate is a provision that would bar any senator except for McCain and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., from offering amendments to bills coming out of conference.

In addition, sources close to Vice President Joe Biden say that the special report on gun control authorized by President Obama is on the fast track behind the scenes and could be introduced quickly and unexpectedly in the House by Jan. 15 rather than the end of the month deadline originally set.
