    Filibuster reform.
    Right.
    If you throw salt on a senator, will it make them shrivel up and go away?
    Neighbors, we deserve better legislators, but it is up to us to find the right people to send. At the very least, write to these people and tell them what you think. Be polite, but you can politely tell someone how disappointed you are with them.
    Respectfully,

    Why not get rid of it altogether? If the GOP wants it so bad they can reinstitute it if they ever take the Senate back.

    It is soooo easy: use the German model! We have a senate, basically, but it’s made up of the governors of the various states. These guys simply don’t have the time to call each other “my good friend from…” all day long. They meet like once a month and ratify or veto what the lower chamber wants to enact into law (simple majority, no filibuster). If vetoed a bill goes back to a reconciliation commission. The whole process takes less than an hour sometimes. It’s just 17 guys sitting around a table and raising their hands…

    Just a nitpick here… spoilers actually increase drag. They function by providing more downforce on the rear wheels, giving them better grip on the road.

    The US has beens “borrowing” (think printing) $50,000 a second for about 4 years. The male bovine excrement will hit the fan some day and the Senate will be no more..

    It’s pretty obvious that the GOP was determined to prevent as much of Obama’s agenda as possible. They had no intention of negotiating with the idea that if they couldn’t stop a bill, at least they could try to mitigate the harmful effects.

    I thought they still had to stand there and speak as long as they could. And not drink much liquid. That would surely limit the filibuster.
    It is a way to sit back and do nothing for the people as is .

    KIng; While I too think “Blazing Saddles” was a great movie, another Brooks work poking hypocrisy with a pitchfork, the “badges” line was originally from “Treasure of the Sierra Madre” with Bogart.
