2. I agree with Cenk, but I do think the threat of a filibuster should not have replaced an actual
filibuster. Reid could end that BS tomorrow.

3. Maybe they could institute football time-out rules
After 10 filibusters, you have used your side's filibusters up, so use them wisely, or something like that.

The way it is, the Republicans in Congress are holding everything up, and then blaming the Democrats for
not getting anything done.

4. I think the republicans are doing this in part to MAKE the democrats
kill the filibuster. So that the next time the Republicans have the majority again, they will absolutely rule Washington and there will be truly nothing Democrats will be able to say or do about it.

By killing the filibuster, Democrats as the majority party are hoping to be able to hold their own against Republicans in the Minority. That's really sad. :(

I agree that we need to find some way to shut down Republicans from abusing the Filibuster. But not in a way that will hamstring Democrats when we are in the minority again.

5. What kills me is that the media still has to portray the left and right as on par to be "unbias"
despite crap like this
