Cover picture for the articleAn earlier version of this story misspelled Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.)'s first name as Rafael. In the middle of a brazen nationwide assault on voting rights, of a kind we have not seen since Jim Crow was established after the Civil War, some are skeptical that Democrats in Washington will respond. If they don’t, allowing the filibuster to block voting rights legislation, it will consign the party (and its majority of U.S. voters) to possible permanent minority status.

The filibuster is the most important thing the senate has, the democrats are just upset that they can't cram through their horrible policies. the founders knew exactly what they were doing when they created the filibuster.

When did requiring I.D. become such a big deal? You have to have it to drive, have a bank account, for most everything!!

The filibuster is the last bastion of bi-partisanship. Remove it and we are reduced to warring tribes.
