No, it still works; it just doesn't work at-present the way that the Dems want it to....It stopped working in 2016.
Perhaps Senator Harry Reid (D)(Nevada) should not have used the nuclear-option on the 60-vote majority for confirmation, after all?
In any event, the present configuration is just a blip on the scope of history - no need to change it merely for short-term partisan advantage.
I vote to keep it at nine.
And I'd support a Constitutional Amendment to lock that in.
( not that such an Amendment stands a snowball's-chance-in-Hades of ever coming to a vote, or sent to the States for ratification )
