6. Senators love the filibuster because it gives them power.

There are times when a Senator can use the filibuster to declare themselves king, so to speak, whether they are a member of the majority party or not. I don't think Senator Reid ever really had his heart into filibuster reform, but most of his fellow Democratic Senators certainly share the blame.
