Do you believe the Senate should abolish the filibuster so that it takes only a simple majority of 51 votes (out of 100) to pass a bill in the Senate instead of 60? Explain why or why not?
If one party controls the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the presidency all at the same time, and its members are unified in support of their goals, then do you believe they should be able to pass laws and implement the policies they promised and got elected to do, regardless of whether they are Republican or Democrat? Why or why not?
Without reforming the filibuster to make it easier to pass bills into law, do you believe our federal government will be able to effectively address the needs of the country and the American people? Explain, and give examples of needs you believe will not be sufficiently addressed.
