Important piece in The New Yorker. Klein quotes Tom Mann on why a half-measured reform would be worse than no reform: “You won’t have fixed the Senate. But you will have further poisoned the environment.”
A timely article, as filibuster reform happens tomorrow, or not.
Meanwhile, The Onion reports: List of Politically Achievable Reforms Down to Just Three Changes in the Traffic Code. “At press time, legal scholars at the American Bar Association released a white paper contending that two of the three politically achievable reforms would be struck down as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.”
Good timing for the Is America Governable? conference.
