  •  If Senate rules can be changed with only 51 votes (1+ / 0-)

    The next time Repubs filibuster an important bill, pass a rule change that the ability to filibuster is suspended for the next 72 hours and then vote on the bill.

    I am surprised that rules can be changed with just 51 votes on a rule of when a supermajority is required.

    Does anyone have a link to the Senate rules at an authoritative link showing the Senate rules on changing rules?

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
