The GOP will filibuster ANYTHING supported by Democrats, even disaster relief


The GOP will filibuster ANYTHING supported by Democrats. Think I’m exaggerating? I’m not. Here’s proof. On Monday, they filibustered a bill that would fund disaster relief to areas recently devastated by hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and flooding. The bill passed with a 53-33 majority but — BING! — it was a cloture vote meant to end a Republican filibuster so it needed 60.

They did eventually pass the bill but, even then, 38 Republicans voted against it. Here’s the rogue’s gallery of heartless bastards:
