Democrats vote to curb filibusters on appointees
Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., speaks to the media on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013. The Senate is nearing a potential showdown on curbing the power that the Republican minority has to block President Barack Obama’s nominations, as Democrats edge toward muscling a rewrite of filibuster rules through the chamber. Reid was expected to force a vote as soon as Thursday on requiring only 51 votes to end filibusters, or delaying tactics, against nominees for high-level judgeships and agency officials.
