Changing the Constitution

Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says what we all knew about the judicial filibuster:

“This fight is not about the seven radical nominations. It's about clearing the way for a Supreme Court nominee who only needs 51 votes, not 60.”

That's why the filibuster must be broken -- it is unconstitutional to require a supermajority for legislation or appointments where none exists in the Constitution itself.
