Re: “The Senate talks filibuster reform

I don't feel bad that the judges had to wait - even up to a year - for their lifetime appointments. Turning the Senate into the House would make it that much easier for the whims of the ill-informed public to become law. Without the ability of the minority to slow things down, yes even the the Robert Borks and other judges, you can kiss Obamacare goodbye, along with Social Security, Medicare, and all of the other hard fought progressive measures which ultimately had to get over the 60 vote hurdle. Repeal would be an election away without the Senate formed to the wishes of the framers. Be careful what you wish for here people, the Democrats wont control the Senate forever.
