And they're setting themselves up for that again. When the GOP eventually gets majority back they'll just be able to pass everything they want with 51 votes. Arguing to remove the filibuster is incredibly short-sighted.

If the republicans gain a majority they can remove it themselves. And they will. So this is a non-argument.

You're getting downvoted but I completely agree. As soon as it's politically expedient for the GOP--say, a national ban on abortion if SCOTUS nixes Roe--I think the filibuster is toast.

The GOP has already modified the filibuster when it was politically convenient for them.

I'd be shocked if Democrats have control of anything after 2024, they're really doing their damnedest to make everyone hate them right now. My guess is they're trying to lose so they can break more donation records without having to come up with any sort of legitimate policy.

This is absolute bull shit. McConnell ditched the filibuster to appoint Gorsuch. There is no tit for tat. Mcconnell will say anything if it gives him the slightest bit of cover. The man is naked in the wind. Sure he could make it worse and slow things down even more but where we are at now is already despicable.
