Argument: The Founding Fathers would not approve of the filibuster
Elliot Richardson. "The Case Against the Senate Filibuster". 2005: "The Founding Fathers would be appalled to learn that the framework they labored so valiantly to construct had been perverted by the filibuster."
Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa). "There is no reform more important to this country and to this body than slaying the dinosaur called the filibuster. We need to change it so that we can really get back to what our Founding Fathers envisioned - a process whereby the minority can slow things down, debate them, but not kill things outright.'"
