    that worked for all intents and purposes for the Gop

    Gang of 14. The Republicans wouldn't bat an eye. They will Nuke the Senate rules to win.

    The tired warning: "But if the Gop take the majority then Democrats will wish they still had the filibuster power" - is just an excuse imo.

    It's false protection.

    A rule obeyed by only one side of the aisle works for only one side of the aisle - the Gop - unless Democrats toughen up big time.
