Drama Queen Gets a Civics Lesson

Lloydletta contributor does a great job.

Here's a short civics lesson.

The GOP is the minority party in the Minnesota Senate. The senators in the DFL majority, which grew by 2 seats in recent special elections, all have election certificates. They didn't just show up one day.

Senators from the minority party author a bill. A commitee chair from the majority party is agreeing to hear the bill.

Who is obstructing what?

Expecting that a bill follow the standard legislative process is not 'obstructionist'. You can disagree with the possible outcome, and be frustrated by the timing, but the argument is strained.
