  •  No, more than that. (0+ / 0-)

    The GOP House know they have no reason to negotiate with the Senate, because their minority filibuster effectively give them control of both houses of Congress.  Right now, we have extremely far right wing crazy crap coming out of the House and merely right wing or useless crap coming out of the Senate.  With real filibuster reform, the Dems could pass more progressive legislation out of the Senate.  Laws (especially budgets) that came to conference would have significant enough differences that the GOP would have to negotiate for real.  No more of this Dems = GOP-light garbage.

      we had that exact same phenomena (reverse the houses of Congress) in 09-11, and didn't get your results.
