My understanding is that the prolific use of the filibuster by the GOP was in response to Reid not allowing amendments to bills in by Republicans before they came out of committees. If Reid is shutting them out of the process of creating bills, why shouldn't they filibuster?

BTW, I wonder what the outrage from the left will be when they find themselves in the minority in the future?
