Ok, maybe a bit of clickbait, but it is true. Back in 2013 when the Democrats couldn't get Obama's nominees confirmed, Harry Reid instituted what was called the nuclear option. https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...65cfe8-52b6-11e3-9fe0-fd2ca728e67c_story.html So most nominees now only require a majority vote instead of the 60 previously needed to overcome a filibuster. Looks like Harry's nuclear option might come back to haunt them now that the tables have turned. Maybe if they hadn't been so delusional in thinking they were going to take it back. Now in my personal opinion, they should go back to the 60 vote threshold, but do it old school where you actually have to have someone stay up there and speak as long as the Senate is in session.
