There's a growing interest in doing away with the filibuster, because it's one of the reasons the Democrats haven't led the nation into a new era of peace and prosperity.

It only takes a 3/5 majority to attain cloture. That's 60 out of 100 votes, something the Democrats had until Massachusetts elected the visible Scott Brown over the invisible Martha Coakley.

And they still couldn't get shit done.

The filibuster isn't the problem. Congress - and what passes for 'work' in those hallowed halls, as well as Democratic 'leadership' - is.
