Have to say...

I do agree with stripping the imaginary fillibuster. Think about how absurd it is. The idea of a fillibuster, originally, is that you talk until the session is over and therefore a vote cannot happen - basically. Now, all a Senator has to do is file a little piece of paper with the word "fillibuster" on it and they go in front of the cameras and say their hands were tied because of a fillibuster.

Not sure how I feel about the idea of a fillibuster, I don't find it moral and it removes rights from other members. But, if there is going to be one, at least they should put in the work.
