  •  At which point (none)
    The far right would go overtime trying to replace those 6 Republican senators with hard right-wingers who will march in lockstep.  And they don't even have to replace all six- one or two is enough.  If we only have four or five Republican Senators on our side on this, it's irrelevent.  Rule change passes 51-50 with Darth Cheney casting the tie breaking vote.  Worse yet, those four or five soon-to-be-ex Republicans would almost certainly find themselves locked out- possibly no committee assignments at all, and for a certainity no good committee assignements.  No pork for their districts.  No money from the central party.  Just in time to face that incredibly well financed primary challenge from the right.
