If I understand correctly, a "majority" in the U.S. Senate is 60 out of 100 votes. In a normal country, a majority is 51, but at some point the Senate made a rule that if a vote was "only" more than 50 but still less than 60 on one side, then the other side would filibuster and "talk out the vote," as they say in Britain.
So I would expect to see filibusters all the time, or at least a lot of the time, whenever a vote was over 50 and under 60, but senators are pussies. They just decide that just the threat of a filibuster is enough and 60 is the new majority, because they don't want to waste the nation's time by going through with the actual filibuster.
I say no. I say I want them to work, and if a filibuster threat keeps a valid law from passing when it has a mathematical majority, I want to se the damn filibuster. Work for it. And these are the rules:
None of this crap where you can take a five minute break to pee every hour. No. You gotta hold it. Did Jimmy Stewart pee? I think not.
No food or drink or lackeys bringing you candy. I don't know when they added this bogus exception. No food, all talk, all the time.
CNN would get to cover the filibuster without interruptions, with a special Pee-Cam trained on the senator's shoes so we could look for puddles.
Oh, no wastebaskets near the filibuster. We had an alderwoman pee in a trashcan at a political function, I think, I imagine because she didn't want to yield the floor.
You can still filibuster; you just have to work for it so I can at least be entertained. I feel this is reasonable.
