This is one reason why we're hearing "end the filibuster" bleatings from the left.Harry Reid killed the filibuster for SCOTUS nominees a while ago, remember? That is how Trump was able to get his picks through the Senate.
I think some items can still be filibustered, tho? Senate voted 298 times for "cloture" last year.
