    they would because it would become a filibuster the moment that Harry put the same exact bill up for debate.

    cloture is a standard vote to stop debate and vote.

    you can vote against it without wanting a filibuster, namely, because you really think more debate is needed!

    Give them more debate and it starts to become a filibuster when the minority stops trying to convince you and reads from a phonebook or just goes home.

    And it would be reported to the nation as the Republicans blocking minimum wage legislation.

    strong infrastructure, fair play and sober leadership
