Rather, they prevent key bills with bipartisan support, like gun control bills and the public option on Obamacare, from passing the Senate.

Don't get rid of our system of checks and balances!! I think it's dangerous to get rid of the filibuster and not for nothing, has everyone forgotten that just last year it was the Republicans that wanted to get rid of it and the Dems wanted to keep it. Now they act like it was the other way around all along.
