Podcast: Filibuster or filibusted?
This week, Julia Azari, Lee Drutman, and James Wallner consider the filibuster. What purpose does it serve? Have its consequences gotten worse as the Senate has become more partisan? Or is the problem that senators are less interested in legislating today than they once were? What, if any, reforms should the Senate adopt to deal with the problems created by the filibuster? These are some of the questions they discuss on this week’s episode.
