You sound like Henry Hyde, when he said congress declaring war was obsolete...'er actually I believe he called it an anachorism.
You don't get to change it at will even if it's obsolete. You change it with an amendment.
Other than that, it's just your OPINION that it's a sham.

Fact is that the Senate still gets to make it's operational rules NOT the President. There is NO delegated power for the President to make such a rule change for another branch. That destroys the checks and balances, which is never obsolete—unless you want a dictatorship. Checks and balances are NOT obsolete. Taking powers is NOT obsolete which is what you are calling for.
