The Harry Reid Legacy That Could Radically Transform America

March 31, 2015

Richard Arenberg comments on Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, who is retiring this year and may be most remembered for deploying the so-called "nuclear option" on Nov. 21, 2013, to abolish the filibuster for most nominations. "I do fear that the use of the nuclear option by Harry Reid and the Democrats has put the Senate on the slippery slope to the eventual elimination of the filibuster," Arenberg said.
