Republicans: "The Party Of NO" Is Setting A Record On The Use Of The Filibuster

MSNBC: GOP senators are on pace to triple previous uses of procedural obstruction

I care more about my country than I do about ideological loyalties.

I think that if the Republicans are using the filibuster strictly for the purposes of obstruction and for no good reason otherwise then the Democrats need to call their hand and FORCE THEM to actually filibuster, speaking at the podium and all.

I may be a conservative but I do believe that certain bills that don't require a 3/5ths majority should be allowed to pass without such obstruction.

My preference is to have a divided House vs Senate by which more moderate bills would be required lest they die a certain death between chambers.
