    Trot it out every time somebody talks about the will of the people, yadda, yadda.  Give people a notion of just what they're losing on account of the abuse of the filibuster.

    Even if they say Democrats are allowing that to occur, ask them two questions: first, it's the abuse of the filibuster that's causing this to occur, the habitual use.  The second point would probably be best made by quoting  Republicans complaining about the filibuster in 2005.

    Tell them one of two things has to be done: the abuse of the filibuster has to stop, or the filibuster has to be either eliminated, or reshaped so it can't be abused any longer.
