Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) briefs the press after the weekly Senate Republican Policy Committee meeting at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. on November 27, 2012. Blunt said it is important that the Senate continue to do business as usual and not change Senate rules to prevent senators from using the filibuster. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has proposed invoking seldom-used procedures to change Senate Rules (which some have called the "nuclear option") with a simple 51 vote majority.
