Response to bucolic_frolic (Reply #9)

13. As the proposal is currently written

(to my understanding) There will be no filibuster on "move to commit" motions, which means that you can't just stifle discussion right out of the gate, and If you call a filibuster, you have to actually FILIBUSTER.. right out there in the open, trying to make your case to the American people.

This all seems prudent, and safe should Dems find themselves in the minority, because Democratic policies are MUCH more popular than repub ones.
