22. Happened to catch this question and answer on the fillibuster

Sure hope Biden doesn't believe what he said that the fillibuster actually leads to negotiation when the reality is, it does not. All it does is allow the minority to scuttle any and everything. Removing the fillibuster is what would make the minority come to the table and be serious about negotiating.

And anyone who thinks McConnell/GOP would not eliminate the fillibuster in a second if that's all that stood between them and achieving their fondest desires legislative agenda is not paying attention. Look no further than the elimination of the fillibuster for SCOTUS nominees once Trump was sworn in.
