Sen. Martin Heinrich
Rep. Steve Pearce
Sen. Tom Udall

The filibuster in its present form is a device whose time is long since past. It isn't very useful and it never will be, for one of the few fairly simple reasons in politics.
It's all benefit and no cost, rather like leaving a lunatic rant on some internet news board. It's too easy.
I applaud Sen. Tom Udall's position on the issue. He's willing to risk a future advantage in order to make the Congress an effective body once again.
