    Let's assume the GOP fails to take the Senate. I could see a scenario where their 48 (or whatever) Senators + a few Blue Dog types try to pass something. Whether or not the remaining Dems would try to filibuster remains to be seen.

    I'm guessing the Senate Dems would cower and refuse to filibuster, but you never know.

      ...they do filibuster reform, in the wrong way, at the worst possible time.  Thus, the Senate becomes a seive for whatever nonsense gets passed in the House because there's always two or three Democratic senators who will support just about any idiocy the Republicans propose.

      No tears for millionaires.
