Reichstag v. Reichsrat[edit]

♠The third paragraph states:

So in effect, bills vetoed by the Reichstag very frequently died.

But isn't the point that the Reichsrat had the power to veto the legislation of the Reichstag? Thus in the sentence from the article that is quoted above, it seems like Reichstag is a mistake and it should instead read Reichsrat, i.e. if the Reichsrat vetoed a bill it was difficult to get the supermajority needed in the Reichstag to override that veto.♠ SixBlueFish (talk) 20:33, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

This article seems totally wrong[edit]

This article is in total conflict with the main article on the German Empire (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Empire) and the article on the North German Confederation. They both state that the upper house was the Reichsrat, NOT the Bundesrat as stated here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.169.162.100 (talk) 10:40, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

I agree. It seems contradictory, and is at best, very confusing. (I, too, came here via a link from the North German Confederation. A possible explanation is that two Reichsrats existed, one during the former government and another during the Weimar era. Someone with knowledge of the subject needs to clarify this (and the phrase mentioned in the preceding section, though since corrected, remains cumbersome and a little confusing, even if it's technically accurate).
I think someone should put a template message that's more general than just the mention of lacking citations – the whole article needs attention.
