The filibuster made sense when there was a rational opposition and a relatively small amount of bills were effectively filibustered.
Now, every single initiative that comes from our elected majority is effectively killed, or grossly emasculated by the threat of the filibuster in our venerated "House of Lords," or "UPPER HOUSE of Congress," the U.S. Senate. The American people have spoken over the last two elections. If the Minority Party cannot look to the filibuster responsibly . . . there is nothing in the Constitution that enshrines their right to it.
