During his radio show on Thursday, Rush Limbaugh reacted to the Democrat-led U.S. Senate passing the “nuclear option” that essentially stops the GOP from filibustering presidential nominees.
Limbaugh argued that by reducing the number of votes needed to end filibusters against President Barack Obama’s nominees from 60 to 51, Democrats have fundamentally altered the Senate’s balance of power.
“They just changed 250 years’ worth of rules on advise and consent, and now Obama’s gonna get every judge he wants,” he explained. “He’s gonna get them. If they want to add seats to a court — if they want to add five new liberal seats to the DC circuit, for example, they can do it. There’s no stopping them because the Republicans don’t have the votes.”
He went on to outline a nightmare scenario that could occur if Democrats are somehow able to take back the U.S. House of Representatives in 2014.
“Folks, this is part and parcel of why the Democrats are so hell-bent on winning the House in 2014,” he explained. “Winning the House would give them total, authoritarian, non-challengeable control over the U.S. government.”
