I'm saying that when democrats were recently in the minority, their use of the filibuster was at an unprecedented level, particularly when it comes to judicial appointments, but in general as well. I guess we can argue about what constitutes "abuse", if anything, but democrats have no room to complain about what they've been reaping for the past few years.
