16. Sure it would work that way in an ideal world
In the real world enough of the MSM will say the Republicans are heroic for stopping evil gubmint socialism. Furthermore, the senate rules allow the Majority Leader to allow senate business to continue as well. That's the point I was making earlier. Before then if a filibuster was going on the Majority Leader could go on TV and say "look my hands are tied, they are the only ones that can allow senate business to go on by stopping the filibuster". Now he has the option to let senate business go on and if he doesn't use it he will get blame as well as the minority.
