92-Year-Old Sen. Byrd Has Trouble Giving Speech On Use Of Filibuster

Senator Robert Byrd spoke today before the Senate Rules Committee about the importance of Senate rules but the need to reign the abuses of them. "I share the profound frustration of my constituents and colleagues as we confront this situation. The challenges before our nation are far too grave, and too numerous, for the Senate to be rendered impotent to address them, and yet be derided for inaction by those causing the delay," said Byrd. Byrd, at times, took pauses and seemed to slur his speech.
