    is not the filibuster.

    it's to protect the power of the States by giving them two Senators each.

    there aren't many liberals who care about states' rights, so most liberals would support abolishing the Senate.

    there aren't many conservatives who care about states' rights either - they only cared when it was about protecting slavery or segregation. so they would probably support abolishing the Senate as well.
