    unfortunately there isn't the saying of:

    "What goes around, comes around."

    for nothing.

    Reid has promised to gut the filibuster for this session. This is the first time he's had enough votes for that, along with popular support for it.

    I'd like to see it more like an NFL challenge flag. Each party would get a limited number per session, which would prevent filibusters from being tossed around frivilously.

    not a bad idea!

    cuz they are used frivolously!

    though i think if they just used it as it is suppose to be used, which is for extended debate and were made to stand up in front of their podium for as long as they had something to say ....that could limit them.
