The Democrats are Attempting to Violate Senate Rules

Yesterday, I wrote on how the Democrats were going to attempt to water down the filibuster by modifying the Senate rules with a simple majority vote, which could only be done on the first day of Congress.  Brian Darling of the Heritage foundation cites Senate history and rules to refute this claim.  The crux of the matter is, the Senate is a continuing body as outlined by Senate rules and tradition, and rules continue from one session of Congress to the next.  The Senate rules state that only a 2/3 supermajority can change the rules.  The left’s assault on the Filibuster is wrong, and a violation of Senate rules.  The full transcript of Darling’s analysis is over at Gateway Pundit.
