A bipartisan group of 61 senators sent a letter to Senate leaders Friday urging them to maintain the 60-vote threshold for filibusters involving legislation, which they said is needed to ensure bipartisanship remains a component of passing bills through the chamber.

The move comes in the wake of a contentious battle this week in the Senate over the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch when the Republicans who control the chamber used the "nuclear option" to neutralize the filibuster for nominees to the Supreme Court.
"We are writing to urge you to support our efforts to preserve existing rules, practices, and traditions as they pertain to the right of Members to engage in extended debate on legislation before the United States Senate," said the letter that was spearheaded by GOP Sen. Susan Collins of Maine and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware. "Senators have expressed a variety of opinions about the appropriateness of limiting debate when we are considering judicial and executive branch nominations. Regardless of our past disagreements on that issue, we are united in our determination to preserve the ability of Members to engage in extended debate when bills are on the Senate floor."
Sanity in our poilitical process anyone?

To elaborate the way I see it let the Repubs sell the farm on this one it'll only bolster the progressives who'll soon have their seats

It was pretty ridiculous how extensively it was used against the previous democratic majority

Gorsuch - from what I've seen - looks to be an exemplary choice. He made the guy questioning him look rather silly in fact.

Yeah. Gorsuch is great. Thank God we got someone in there who will side with the corporation for firing a guy who refused to sacrifice his life instead of following orders. But hey at least the didn't let the black president have his pick, right?
