Does anyone know why Dems fear a filibuster?
Why don't they just go for a vote and let the Republicans filibuster? What's to be lost?
Wouldn't it just make the Republicans look like the problem?
Not one non-senator thinks filibustering is a positive thing. It's seen as simple obstructionism. And it only lasts a couple of days. Hell, we've spent months dreading it. Just let it happen, already, and when a couple of days are over health care will pass easily.

The Democrats don't fear a filabuster they just don't want to deal with them ie they show compromise. They want nothing to stop their agenda OR let it be known that there IS some opposition to what they are trying to do.

They want mail it in support for their policies.
