  •  It's hard to raise money from the Senate floor. (6+ / 0-)

    Particuarly if you raise that money with $2,500 per plate dinners. Support the talking filibuster.

    •  It probably won't be a problem. (2+ / 0-)

      A senator can probably work their schedule such that their 36 minutes per day of reading from the Internet doesn't conflict too much with their fundraising.

      Now, if it took 40 votes to sustain a filibuster insead of 60 to break one, and votes could be called at any time, the burden is reversed and it would prevent them from leaving the senate chambers. That's what I think people really want.

      •  Yes. (0+ / 0-)
