    Not in the Senate though, which was his point.

    Not when there's a strong objection from 40 Senators, which is the point that everyone else in this thread understands.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    They can, but it is not common.

    You don't understand...
    I want to see the republican senators holding up HC reform for Americans by filibustering it for weeks and months on end ....

    What I mean is, the United States is so partisan that 51 votes is a crushing majority win, even if it the bare minimum to get through the Senate.

    I wish they would just throw it all out and pass Single Payer through reconciliation. Why wait for ages to get a more progressive congress and get it done? It's time.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Those people disagree with some 70% of the rest of the country. I'm not sure what your point is.
