What Republicans have just gotten away with calls our whole system of government into question. After all, how can American democracy work if whichever party is most prepared to be ruthless, to threaten the nation’s economic security, gets to dictate policy? And the answer is, maybe it can’t.
“Gotten away with”? It’s like how Bush got away with winning the election even though Gore got more votes. Whenever Murdoc hears people whining like this, he suspects that the whiner must not really know how the US government works or that it works that way on purpose.
Or they just wish it was a different form of government.
I don’t recall Krugman complaining about how unjust the filibuster was, for instance, when the Dems were using it. Maybe I missed it.
