The filibuster solution

TigerHawk has a great solution to the Senate showdown over filibusters: make the filibusterers actually filibuster! Jack Kemp proposed the same thing last year.

Under the current rules, obstructionists in the Senate can block a vote on anything without actually having to stand up and filibuster. If they were required to argue their point for hours on end, they might think twice about using the filibuster so often.
