Another cool (but temporary for now) provision of this law is reducing the health care subsidy floor

I've read the argument that Democrats have less to lose from reforming the Senate filibuster rules than Republicans do, since Republican priorities can mostly be accomplished through reconciliation.

However, are there any significant Republican priorities that would be passed with filibuster reform that otherwise wouldn't? One that immediately comes to mind could be the privatization of Social Security.

I'm just wondering if Democrats might reform the filibuster and then look back regretting the decision.

The thing about the modern republican party is, if their donors and/or base want something bad enough theyll just do it. They use the rules as a cudgel until it benefits them. Then when they break them Dems scream about hypocrisy which affects about 0.0001% of the voters.

Any democrat not looking for ways to pressure Breyer to retire needs to retire right along
