11. The so called "nuclear option"

votes like this are why both sides must resist the "nuclear option" to change the filibuster/cloture rules from the current 60 to a straight majority vote.

While it may solve a right now issue (like when many here called for changing the rules during the Obama Administration when Democratic Party held a majority in the Senate), it can quite easily come back as a bite on the ass when the tables are turned.
