Here's my "Day 100" list of bills that the GOP would adopt in a filibuster-free environment:Right. But my contention is that adopting more than one or two of those would be so unpopular with the independents the GOP needs to get elected that they wouldn't have a majority in either side of Congress again for quite a while. Without a majority, their changes would only be temporary - they'd be repealed in the next Congress. Further, without a periodic majority in the Senate, the right tilt to the Supreme Court would also end as conservative justices leave the court and are replaced with more centrist and liberal justices. So while they could adopt that list of bills in the absence of a filibuster, I believe they won't because of the longer term risk to their hold on power.--Peter
