The One-Time End of the Filibuster will Happen Soon in the U.S. Senate, and will Happen More than Once
The end of the filibuster in the U.S. Senate will begin soon.
Pro hac vice, or “for this time only,” or “for this turn” or “for this event,” will be the rationale: on an issue, this important (pick one, like for the Dems voting rights and abortion) suspending or ending the filibuster “for this event only” will occur this year.
The Dems have political priorities, and their base wants and needs the voting rights bill and the abortion rights bill to pass.
Any political party needs their base to be with them because their base not being with them is causing/will cause problems for them when attempting to pass other significant Democratic party legislation.
Therefore, because of the great overuse of the filibuster to attempt to stop things that, for example, two-thirds of the Senate agree with, the filibuster will begin to end over the issues of voting rights and abortion, since the Democratic Party is quite clear they will never find the 10 GOP votes on either issue, so, the Dems have decided the filibuster must end “for this time only,” to pass these bills.
Obviously, these two events at some point in the future will not end the filibuster immediately, but it is, without a doubt, the firm historic point of the real beginning of the end of the filibuster in the U.S. Senate.
