    why we need 60 votes for everything?

    Maybe I missed something, but all we've really gotten are lots of threats about filibustering, and so we preemptively try to get to 60 votes before moving on a bill.

    So, if we're going to be bogged down in the Senate anyway, why don't we let the Repukes do the bogging and let them pay the political price for it?

    •  The government cannot function (0+ / 0-)

      requiring a supermajority on everything.  Or requiring "bipartisanship" when one party has abdicated its responsibility to do anything.  

      Is this rocket science?
