Abstract: President Barack Obama says that the U.S. Senate rules which require sixty votes to end filibustering are not only extra-Constitutional but, more importantly stifle the flow of necessary legislation based, more often that not, on partisan interests. He wants to see these rules changed for the sake of better governance on behalf of the American people. I couldn?t agree more. But the Senate rules are only one aspect of our bipartisan government that consistently places partisan interests over those of “the people.”
