America's constitutional butt wasn't plugged after-all, I guess. Just over a year in office President Obama and the Democrats passed their world changing health care reform despite the perceived horrors of the Republican "No!". President Obama now ranks up there with the likes of F.D.R., Johnson, and Reagan; all mountain movers of Presidents.

So rejoice! Congress can still get shit passed. :)

Anybody... why should the Filibuster rules be changed now? HR got passed, yes? History was not stopped by the dreaded Republican "No!".

If the system worked, why change the system?
