  •  Currently Dems don't need to filiibuster (2+ / 0-)

    They have a Majority in the Seante.  Without the filibuster, they have enough votes to do what ever they want in the Seanate.  The just have to get through the house.

    This mean instead of negotiating with the left most Republicans, you would be talking to the 4 or 5 most conseravtive Democract as to what was needed for their vote.  The right edge of the Democract cacus would have no voice.

    All they would need is 50 Senators to pass legislation and appointments (Biden breaks ties).

    They could fill the federal bench in an afternoon ...

    My I find the strength to do the things I already know need to be done.
