Why Does Senator Sasse Wants to Keep the Filibuster?

How many of you have seen “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington?”. If you haven’t, you are without.

This Jimmy Stewart gem is a must-see for any political junkie like myself, and tells the story of a regular guy roped into running for office by a slick politician, then standing up against corruption once he got there. Because of Senate rules, he was able to hold up the government taking action on something that the corrupt politician’s party supported. The rule was the filibuster.
