  •  Here's a better question: (3+ / 0-)

    How many times have the Dems actually used the filibuster in recent years, and for what bills, and what were the results of it?

    We know that the GOP is much better at sticking together than the Dems and much more likely to abuse the filibuster anyway.

    Therefore, while it should be equally useful to both sides, the truth is that the only party that benefits from it is the GOP. When the Dems are in charge, the GOP filibusters the shit out of everything; when the GOP is in charge, the Dems tend to cave anyway, so it's a useless tool for them.
