    If we could count on the republicans to play fair and put the interests of the country above politics, I would be in favor of keeping the filibuster. But the republicans have shown over and over that they won’t act in good faith. I think the Democrats will have no choice but to change the senate rules, because if they don’t, nothing will get done because the republicans will block even reasonable and necessary reforms like they have since they instituted their group think approach to politics. I know we can’t shove the genie back in the bottle, but if we use the wishes wisely, it shouldn’t matter.
