    The GOP used reconciliation to pass their budgetary matters with majority vote, and the Democrats then repealed reconciliation to make it easier for the GOP to fillibuster them. Thus, I disagree with you. If the GOP eliminates the filibuster, they can bank on that the Democrats will reinstate it when they gain control of the senate again.

    This will happen because the GOP plays to win, while Democrats believe in fairness. It's just in their nature for this to happen.
