SP writes,

The filibuster rules put the Senate in the catbird seat and pretty much make the House of Representatives a nullity.

Why would they change and make give the House a lot more power than it has now?


The problem right now is that nothing can get done with the 60 vote threshold in the Senate. Eventually the gridlock will endanger the current officeholders. They'll need to change to survive.
