Filibuster Compromise

The Ebb & Flow Institute offers a compromise to end the confrontation in the Senate over the filibuster of judicial nominees.

We are in support of keeping the filibuster as a tool for senators to slow down and stymie legislative action. We feel there are times when this can and should be done in the interest of the American taxpayer.

Therefore we find it apropos to propose the following proposal. Eliminate the filibuster of judicial nominees, but change the rules so that it can now be used where budget resolution are concerned.
