MADDOW: Why is it that everything takes 60 votes now? I mean, it used to be 60 votes was a headline. If somebody forced 60 votes, that meant they were filibustering and that meant that they were taking an unusually strong stand against something. Now it’s 60 votes even for routine–
REID: Rachel, this has to change. It’s wrong what they’re doing, because it’s never happened before.
The Republicans, just this time, have abused the system, and it’s going to have to change. We’ll have to look at ways to change that, because there should not be 60 votes in the Senate.
MADDOW: So, you would support efforts to change the rules around the filibuster so that there won‘t be a 60-vote threshold for every vote?
REID: Well, that‘s right, not for every vote.
