Worth repeating.

Nick Beaudrot on the media's normalization of the Senate supermajority roadblock...
...while treaties need 67 votes to pass, nothing needs 60 votes to pass; that requirement is a choice made by current members of the Senate.
I'll bet somebody you know - bunch of folks, probably - thinks the filibuster is in the Constitution.

It ain't.

Spread the word.
