Alexander Says Democratic Effort to Change Filibuster Is "Election Nullification"

In his keynote speech today at the Heritage Foundation on Democratic efforts to end or limit the filibuster in the Senate, U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said that voter anger this past November was as much about “how it was done” as it was about the substance of the new health care law. Alexander said voters “remember the passage of the health care law on Christmas Eve, 2009: midnight sessions; voting in the midst of a snow storm; backroom deals; little time to read, amend or debate the bill; passage by a straight party-line vote.”
