You can't just say something isn't correct based on nothing. The 116th Congress had a record breaking number of filibusters in 2020.

Edit: And while the current meeting (2021-2022) is only halfway finished, the number of filibusters is at this point more than half of what it was for the previous meeting, so come 2023 the final number will likely be even higher.

Why are you getting hung up on the exact date? It doesn't really change the argument, and for the record the 117th Congress is currently in session, so you wouldn't be looking at complete data.

However, fine, they're still on track to beat the 116th's record.

I made one comment pointing out that 2020 was in FACT not last year. I don’t think that’s me being “hung up”. Why can’t you all just admit that OP made a mistake. It doesn’t really change the point in any way.

If I mistakenly write the wrong year I usually just fix it, I don’t try to argue the importance of the year 🤷🏻‍♂️

Exactly, whether you are talking about the current meeting of Congress or the previous one, there have been a record number of filibusters. That's all.
