Huge Change in Senate But Most People Don't Care

The Fix: "Thursday was a landmark day in political Washington. The Senate changed its rules on filibusters for the first time in its history -- opening a potential Pandora's Box that may very well lead to a future of majority-only votes in the world's greatest deliberative body. The implications for the Senate's traditions as well as how it functions day-to-day are hard to overstate."

"And yet, for the world outside of Washington, invoking the nuclear option and the changing of filibuster rules are non-happenings -- moments that barely register and almost certainly will have zero impact on who they vote for in the coming midterm elections."
