      I guess I didn't ask my questions clearly; I'll try another day. Thanks for your replies. Much appreciated.

      Just so I remember what to find out:

      1. There is no rule Dems have in the current Congress that allows a motion to proceed to be non-debable? (Would have to wait for next congress?)
      1. If there were a rule that allows a motion to proceed to be non-debatable, it would apply to the Thugs equally, I suppose. Therefore, would there then be a way to limit bringing junk motions to proceed to the floor for debate, which could be endless and jam the senate even worse?

      There will come a day of judgment, and our Republican friends know that. That, Mr. President, is why they are terrified. - Sheldon Whitehouse
