Tonight, nearly every Senate Democrat wrote in permanent ink that they would shatter the soul of the Senate for short-term power. Fortunately, a bipartisan majority saved the Senate and ensured that millions and millions of Americans’ voices will not be silenced.

The filibuster has already been carved up or changed 160-some times. This isn't a moment to cling to an archaic rule, this is another moment for reform.

Show me where in the Constitution it says it requires 60 votes to pass most legislation. It specifies supermajorities for impeachment and treaties, yet doesn't mention a filibuster power once. Majority rules is the basic premise of democracy and representational government, sir.

Try reading the original set of the senate it was 2/3 vote which would be 66 senators not 60
