More than enough D senators have said they want nothing to do with it and won't weaken, let alone destroy the filibuster.

With any luck, they'll have even less of a chance at it after the 2022 mid-terms. The Dems that are saying they won't stoop to that tactic are doing so in hopes that they can still retain control of both houses of congress by not plainly going over the cliff into no-checks-and-balances territory, which would get them slaughtered in 2022, and they know it. The not-insanely-leftist D legislators know that not grabbing pure simple majority power is how they might actually hold on to the power they have, rather than burn it in a bonfire next year.

Even with the filibuster alive, the skin-of-the-teeth D majority in the legislature still allows them to control the legislative agenda (the Rs can filibuster things the Ds introduce, but the Rs can't force the Ds to take up bills the Ds don't want), and that's better for them than getting creamed in 2022.

Harry Reid already screwed the Demoncrats over while removing the filibuster for judicial appointments. Trump filled the federal judiciary with conservatives.

The libs are shaking in their shoes about this one and the Mississippi abortion cases that have been granted cert.

They also have a case of exploding heads as pertains that you can be a scotus justice and NOT be a lib. And all sorts of other things.

Also say that the judges are having worse internal struggles now than every before accusing each other of being political hacks.

Bless their hearts.

It’ll be interesting to see if they try the moot thing… with the last case, after every low court judge agreed with the nyc vs nycrpc case…

I am wondering why it is taking so long to release the opinion in Lange v California (20-18)

The SCOTUS has been siding on the 4A side of things lately.

I take it as a very close split decision that'll get handed down perhaps the last day of the term.

It should be an easy opinion to write: vacated and remanded, see Caniglia v Strom.
