  •  Can McTurtle still filibuster ad infinitum? (2+ / 0-)

    Not seeing much in the way of a clean change in the filibuster here.

    I want to know one thing... and only one thing... "Can Mitch McTurtle STILL filibuster every bill in the Senate by himself?" Or have these new rules (not the gentleman's agreement ones) completely neutered McTurtle's obstructionist tactics? If he can still do exactly the same thing he has been doing the past four years in the Senate then this is NOT an improvement. It's a disaster!

    I tried to read through the weeds in the story, but you lost me much of the time. hehe... Just not as good at understanding this process as you David.
