The History (and Consequences) of the Nuclear Option

In 2013, when Senate Democrats invoked the first iteration of the so-called “nuclear option” by changing the rules of the Senate, then minority leader Mitch McConnell had a telling premonition.  “I say to my friends on the other side of the aisle, you’ll regret this,” he warned. “And you may regret it a lot sooner than you think.”  With that warning now likely coming to fruition, we break down the regrets of the Left and the morphing identity of the Senate.

Later, we take a look at the most recent job numbers and dig into how Trump’s embracing of Conservative principles has been perhaps the single biggest boon of his presidency.

    I also think that you two bring a lot of knowledge and insight to these headlining topics. But so do a lot of other podcasts. What they don’t do is look at areas like Conservative solutions to inner city poverty and the Ohio opioid crisis, those really important issues that don’t get the flashing light on Drudge. That is where I think OppCast shines, and I hope you’ll continue with topics like those.
