Elizabeth Warren Speech on GOP Filibusters of Judicial Nominees

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee sent me an email about this video.  Talking about some of the things Elizabeth Warren has done recently, they said:

And just this week, she gave an amazing speech on the floor of the Senate on Republican abuse of filibuster rules to block judicial nominees. She called it a “naked attempt to nullify the results of the last presidential election.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren delivered remarks on the Senate floor on November 13, 2013, about Republicans’ efforts to block three qualified nominees to the D.C. Circuit Court

If you really want something and the means to get it are readily at hand, what can explain why you don’t try to get it? Harry Reid could do away with the filibuster pretty readily. We are 5 years into the Obama administration and yet the Republicans filibuster almost everything. When is Reid really going to want to get these court positions filled? Is he waiting until Obama has left office? Why would he do that?

It is time someone lit a fire under Harry Reid. (Figuratively speaking)
