From HuffPo comes this amazingly interesting choice of words from the SEIU’s lavender-lapeled lord of labor Andy Stern speaking at the Center for American Progress:
“Are the Senate rules really appropriate for a 21st-century country where we can create gridlock by very limited hard work?” Stern added. “If we are going to have filibusters, let’s at least have a debate. At least make people go to the floor. Let’s put the cots on the floor permanently… Change can easily die in the wells of the Senate.”
Asked how badly he wanted filibuster reform, he replied: “Very badly.”
One could snidely comment about Stern’s use of the term terrorist: It takes one to know one. (But we won’t.)
