Majority rules should apply everywhere
The Seattle Times editorializes that Senate filibuster reform is past due. [“End filibuster abuse,” Opinion, July 17.]
It argues that, inside the Beltway, majority rule is considered the “nuclear option,” while in the rest of the country this is known as an election.
Where is this sensible argument when it comes to Tim Eyman’s continuing, selfishly ratified attempts to impose a two-thirds rule for revenue bills in the Washington state Legislature?
What you suggest would be good inside the Beltway should also apply outside it.
