Abstract

Last week Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul filibustered a budget bill which would have kept the US government open. John D. Rackey writes that Paul's filibuster - which was very unusual in and of itself - was in protest that his amendment to the budget bill was not given a vote. This lack of input outside of the Senate leadership, he writes, illustrates that the US Senate has moved away from its deliberative roots to a much more closed model of legislating.
