Mitch McConnell filibusters his own bill

The headline says it all. Yes, this really happened today.

It's way past time to get rid of the filibuster, which was not an original component of the Senate's rules and which the Republicans have turned into a general-purpose tool to shut down the Senate.

Although, the Dem's ought to be wary of the hubris factor that we the public, on average, have no use for.

I think it signals it's way past time to get rid of Mitch McConnell.
