42. Incremental change is best

Yes, I would fear the fillybuster would be unavailable when
Democrats are in the minority. Not that they have the guts to
use it.

But silent filibustering is not working. Even if they required at least
3 Senators of the other side to present their case for 2 hours each
it would be an improvement.

I'm also concerned about all the riders to bills, these secret corporate
benefits that are slipped in at the last moments. Pandering to the cash
campaign contributions.
