Senator Warren reams regressive Senate filibusters
Time and again the Senate regressives have use the filibuster to implement their business-first agenda. One particular and glaring example is by preventing an up-or-down vote of Obama's DC circuit court judge nominees. Warren articulately lays out why they are doing this, despite the fact that these nominees would be confirmed by majority vote: Regressives want this circuit in their pocket to overturn regulations on the banks and Wall Street. It is that plain and blatant, and it is despicable.
