8. My preference as well. I wish they'd get rid of the filibuster rule

just like the House did in 1842. Jeezus, but the Senate is slow with everything.

On the other hand, wouldn't it be great to actually SEE who the obstructionists are? Maybe Maine voters will kick Susan Collins to the curb and vote for a Democrat for once - or another Angus King-style Independent who'l caucus with the Democrats. Too many Republican senators hide in anonymity as they bring this government to a grinding halt. It's time they put faces on these charlatans.
