Remember also that any replace plan will require the consent of 60 members of the United States Senate (as would any other type of reform).
No. It would (could) require precisely as many votes as are now needed in the Senate to advice and consent to certain Presidential appointments – 51.
But that would require a GOP willing to fight as hard and tough as the Democrats, so Roy is probably right. Even though his advice will consign the GOP to permanent second-class status, but many of them seem perfectly okay with that.
BTW, is say everything you need to know that the likes of Avik Roy are more than welcome at NRO, but John Derbyshire, Mark Steyn, and Mark Levin are not.
Check out my new bestseller, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.com says: “Bill Quick has authored a terrific thriller that is also an all too plausible warning. Highly recommended!” Available in Kindle e-book or trade paperback formats.
