    legislation?  Why not get rid of the filibuster for legislation at the same time and have done with it?

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10

      Say we get rid of the filibuster for legislation, and pass a lot of bills.  None of them get a vote in the teabagger House anyway.

      Don't call these racist thugs the tea party, they are *teabaggers*! Please don't insult the original Tea Party as they were patriots. Call them TeaBaggers!

        all on the teabagger House.  Everything gets stuck there.  And it's controlled by Republicans.  Message being:  Dems in charge, legislation passes.  Republicans in charge, nothing gets done.

          The teabagger House will pass their own version of their legislation.  Repealing the ACA.  Deporting undocumented kids.  Shutting down the government, etc.
