The democrats do not have a history of abusing this power like the republicans do. But the filibuster rule has been changed in the past, so it wouldn't be unprecedented. The fact is that Reid didn't change it last time because McConnell committed verbally not to obstruct. While many were suspicious that McConnell would once again be the skunk in the room, Reid chose to give good will one more change. Well, Mitch indeed stunk up the room and harmed the nation day after day. What I'd rather see is less extremism and less obstruction from the republicans. It would be helpful if they would rescind their support for the Cancer on America, the Grover Norquist blackmail pledge. It would be nice to reclaim a label of patriotism most of them gave away for greed.
