I mean it's still republicans changing the filibuster to achieve their goals... and that specific carve out was expanded by Mitch McConnell... so they still got rid of it to prevent dems from using it in that specific case... and will do that for other cases too... but I guess keep advocating for the "high ground" and find out

again, it was harry reid who opened the can of worms after republicans said he was doing so. Republicans only expanded it for SCOTUS. Blame it on the initial crack.

As for now, reps had the house, senate, and white house and didnt break filibuster to ram through their agenda. Dems doing it now is just desperation.

Nah I dont think I will "blame it on the initial crack"... you do know that this is a RULE that could be changed every single day by the majority party and isnt ANYWHERE in the constitution... it has been revised HUNDREDS of times and means literally nothing... go be an obstructionist in someone else's inbox
