    become part of the reform package? I'm not particularly concerned about time. This is the same Senate that spent two years passing nothing. While requiring senators to speak for a prolonged period of time may tire them out, if they still can't get the votes to pass a bill, it's sort of pointless. Hell, Sen. Sanders spoke for 8.5 hours one day, and it would be difficult to find 10 random people who know that, or know what he said.
