    I can imagine that the Right will have troops marching in the streets pronto if we do this. Not that We should not, We should do it, but we have to be prepared to meet civil unrest with calm determination.
    And there will probably be a Supreme court challenge, and while so far this court has not met a precedent that it could not ignore,it would be worth the price of admission to see them rip the masque off of their right wing agenda and show the 5 as the unconstitutional ideological activists they are once again.

      Right wing troops marching in the streets?  "Bring it on".

      As for a SC challenge, in a less weasely Senate, it would lead to a Constitutional crisis.  There is flat out NOTHING in the Constitution that mandates a supermajority for setting rules, and a filibuster is nothing more than an anti-democratic rule.  If the SC were to decide that the filibuster rules must be retained, you're right, they would certainly be exposing themselves as totally contrary to the rule of law.  We'd need to use Louis XIV's motto:  "L'etat, c'est moi".
