Romania Has No-Confidence Vote Because Romania Has Parliamentary System—US Senate Has No-Confidence Vote Because It Is Silly
The Parliament of Romania recently held a no-confidence vote reagarding the government of Prime Minister Calin Popescu Tariceanu. The Prime Minister survived. Romania has a parliamentary system where no-confidence votes are part of the process.
The United States Senate recently held a so-called no-confidence vote about Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. This vote was held because the Senate was engaged in a silly stunt.
