Senator Ed Markey on Reversing the Nuclear Option

Democrat Senator Ed Markey vows to reverse the nuclear option in the Senate someday

Senator Markey's promise to overturn the nuclear option is a marked departure from the partisan gamesmanship strategy that Democrat Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has been using against the Trump Administration. 

It should be noted, however, that Senator Markey's (D-MA) anti- Nuclear Option promise is a chimera.  The vow of overturning the nuclear option precedent anticipates the same conditions that former Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) when the Reid Rule blew up Senate precedent by changing the rules mid session and making the upper chamber a majority rules body. 

Considering the leftward swing of the Democrat Party and number of vulnerable Democrat Senators in the 2018 election cycle, Markey's promise rings as true as the Obamacare: "If you like your doctor than you can keep him'.
