In case you're not yet angry at Republicans...

Filibusters, Real And Imagined: Real Is Better
People know that Sen. Cruz talked in opposition to the government helping uninsured people get health care.

People know that Sen. Davis talked in opposition to a bill that would close most of Texas’ abortion providers.

People know that Sen. Paul talked to demand answers on the policies surrounding the use of drones to kill Americans ...

Almost no one knows Republicans filibustered a bill to stop giving tax breaks to companies to move jobs out of the country.

Almost no one knows Republicans filibustered a bill to stop giving tax breaks and subsidies to oil companies ... 

The current form of filibuster in the U.S. Senate actually keeps people from knowing what is going on. It is silent, invisible, unaccountable ... 

People have no idea whatsoever that there have been almost 400 filibusters in recent years, and if they did know they’d be a lot angrier at Republicans than they already are.
