Reforming the Senate filibuster rules should be a no brainer. But if nothing is done in this regard you can bet moneyed influence has played its part in scuttling filibuster reform.

Any other verbal gymnastics given by Reid and the Democrats should filibuster reform not occur would be pure political posturing, obfuscation and dissembling.

[ii] Article I, Section 5 of the Constitution reads, "Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings".
