30. He is actually correct about the fact bills shouldn't have bunches of unrelated provisions

but the filibuster is a huge part of the reason so many bills are omnibus bills. Since we now need 60 votes to so much as name a post office thanks to that stupid provision, then all the bills that can be passed whilst bypassing this requirement end up having everything but the kitchen sink in them. In essence you get a limited number of shots at passing such bills making each one a unicorn upon which you put every think you wish to pass. The only other way around it is to have unrelated items put in must pass bills. Instead all bills should be able to pass with a simple majority and be much more limited.
