Response to CentralMass (Reply #17)

19. It won't matter since the Democrats are the minority

 

The filibuster for everything but Supreme Court Justices ended in November 2013 and I fully expect the filibuster for Supreme Court Justices to be removed once the new Senate comes into office.

Realistically it's likely to get even worse in 2018, since the Democrats have far more Senate seats to defend then the Republicans and at least some of those seats are in states that vote Republican almost all the time.
