This year the Democrats, including many in the U.S. Senate, have declared the filibuster to be a “relic of the Jim Crow era” and a grave threat to “democracy” as we know it. Just ask Amy Klobuchar:
I’m not going to let an antiquated Senate rule undermine the foundation of our democracy. You cannot filibuster Americans’ right to vote.
