McConnell Warns He'll Use Nuclear Option for Everything

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) "starkly warned Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) not to eliminate the filibuster on presidential nominations, warning that he'll end the 60-vote threshold for everything, including bills, if becomes the majority leader," TPM reports.

Said McConnell: "There not a doubt in my mind that if the majority breaks the rules of the Senate to change the rules of the Senate with regard to nominations, the next majority will do it for everything."
