    I do realize that it's hypocritical for Republicans to require 60-vote thresholds for everything Democrats propose and then demand simple majority votes on their ludicrous proposals. However, including Senators King and Sanders, there should be 54 votes to reject their nonsense. I feel like this just makes them at least a little correct when they say "Democrats do it too!"

    I don't think there would be 5 D votes for Senator Cornyn's ridiculous amendment, though I could be wrong. When it comes to the "greatest legislative body in the world," who the fuck knows.
