The filibuster has gone from an accidental aberration in the legislative rules to a stone wall against just about everything. It has now completely paralyzed the operation of our government. In the classic film with Jimmy Stewart, everyone was excited because at that time a filibuster was so rare. It has now been so abused as a tool for perverse obstructionism that it must be eliminated . . . and completely.
Making people talk their heads off will just turn the Senate into a place where people just talk their heads off. It's time for our government to work for the people again, instead of being mercilessly manipulated by a selfish and mean spirited minority. And if the Democrats are serious about actually getting something done in the next 2 years, the first thing they will do is dump this odd legislative relic in the trash were it belongs.
