    And I believe The Public knows that.

    The GOP has repeatedly shown us that it does not care what most Americans want or believe. If it did our country would have universal healthcare, a balanced budget, and would have long ago stopped talking about taking away access to abortion that well of over 60% of Americans believe is and should be a right.  I don't see that changing because they lost this last election. They were, after all, quite successful in the previous election.

    I also think the public will see reinstating the filibuster requirements they saw in "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" will be seen as what it is - correction of an error.

    An error that gave so much power to the minority, that the U.S. Senate ceased to be a democratic institution.
