    then I'm all in. Personally, the thought of McConnel and gang yapping endlessly about anything they desire makes me want to retch. Putting the onus on the minority to come up with 41 bodies to sustain a filibuster, and doing away with the ability to filibuster a motion to proceed to debate seems to me a pretty good solution. Not perfect, but dear God, who can stand the thought of open-mic night for Republicans in the well of the Senate?
