The moderate Democrat said he would not support killing off the procedural tool that requires bipartisan support for most bills, but signaled a willingness to advance some party-line votes.
He remained adamant on Sunday that he would not vote to outright abolish the 60-vote supermajority threshold.
“... I’m not willing to take away the involvement of the minority.”
but he's willing to "make the filibuster a little bit more painful."
hm.. bringing back the “talking filibuster.”
ever since that was eliminated, the number of filibusters have risen sharply.
that's a start, i guess.
make the repubs earn their filibuster by continuously speaking on the Senate floor.
Longest one on record is 25hrs
