    We are finally fighting back!  I hope this is only the beginning and the filibuster in any circumstances is buried for good.  Sure there will be times when republicans have power and will try to eat away at sensible government.  But their agenda fully exposed and put in place will insure that they will quickly be rejected by the American people.  On the other hand, had the filibuster not been a factor in 2009, we would likely have passed single payer.  Instead we are forced to defend a "republican lite" healthcare system that has been successfully characterized by the GOP as a "government takeover" of healthcare.  I'd rather be defending what would amount to a gradual absorption of the healthcare system by Medicare.
