    ..and the way they could do something about it. Reactionary moves sure are all the rage with republicans these days.

    The US House once had a filibuster, too - Thu Nov 21, 2013 at 11:28 AM PST

    ..Until 1841, that is.

    After that, the minority party would sometimes make use of the "Disappearing Quorum".

    ..  Sounds like a perfect move for republicans; it's backwards and in this case a "disappearing quorum" could take care of that fringe problem

    That's right, if the filibuster is that important to you, add one to the House. Problem solved! Glad I could help.
