1. Because Senators are cowards
They like not having to make tough votes. They're more concerned with getting re-elected than representing the people.

2. Let the Republicans filibuster. Just wait them out. All filibusters end.

4. Unfortuantely, that didn't help us with the Jim Crow laws.
Filibustering was largely responsible for the reign of Jim Crow for century in the south.

3. I believe that it is now time to get rid of the filibuster or lower it to 55 votes.
