Back in the 70’s, we had excellent educations regarding the Process of Government, thanks, in no small part to the uproar of the 60’s and some wonderful educational shorts by Schoolhouse Rock.

Regardless of which side of the political fence you’re on, the rules have certainly changed regarding two thirds majority. New points of order, Yea or Nay votes and special interests have completely clouded the Legislative process to the point that no one outside of Congress can make any sense of it.

Since the 80’s, I’ve always said, “Take stock in America — Buy a U.S. Senator!”

"How does a bill work?" "No one fucking knowws any more, Billy."
