It’s Time To End The Filibuster

True compromise doesn’t come from minority rule.

The new Congress is starting to organize. They are thinking about the rules. They are still operating under the myth that the rules may be set only with a 60 vote majority. And they are still operating on the myth that the minority has so much power that they can set the rules to their liking. That 60 vote majority requirement to change the rules does not come from the Constitution, it comes from the idea that the present-day Senate can be hogtied by the dead hand of the last Senate.
