I support this entirely

Dems want to change how a filibuster works, not the filibuster itself.

The package does, however, include a reform that would tilt the balance of power toward the majority: Senators must actually be speaking on the Senate floor in order to keep the filibuster alive. If objecting senators finish speaking, the filibuster would end and the blocked bill in question would move to a final vote.

Gasp, you mean in order to filibuster, they’d have to actually filibuster? Le gasp. Cross your fingers with me that this one actually goes through.

The awesome part is I know it’s gonna be Republicans that whine about it.
