    With 41 votes in the Senate, Republicans will be able to filibuster almost anything they want. I thought we lived in a democracy where a majority (50% +1) rules. Political gridlock returns very soon.

    There is no provision in the U.S. Constitution which allows for a filibuster.

    And Senator-elect Brown is not hot at all.

    The Republicans had no problem passing whatever they wanted, even with a slim majority. But that's on the Democrats. I for one think we need to do away with the filibuster, or at a minimum call them on their threats - let them read the phone book for two or three days.

    What did the Republicans exactly pass with a slim majority? Enlighten me? The Bush tax cuts, or the Iraq war? Democrats actually have (or had) an opportunity to pass a healthcare bill with a slim majority (reconciliation), if they really wanted to, but they know there would be an uprising.
