Just another reason to abolish the filibuster.
Not at all! Everyone from time to time has used the filibuster, democrats and republicans. Just because the left doesn't like it does not mean it should be abolished. The liberals love it when there's a filibuster on issues they believe in. Total hypocrisy from the left, again.
