Of course, as is the “rule” it would seem in US politics, what one has said in the past is irrelevant compared to what one needs now…

 

As a Senator in 2005, Pres Obama opposed changing the filibuster rule. WH says GOP use of filibuster as a tactic is worse now.

But back to Daniel to explain…

The US Senate was designed precisely to be a brake on transient majorities. Delay isn’t an abuse of its function; it *is* its function.
