Lots of filibuster reform discussion today, right off the bat, and right through our discussions with Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter, as well. Greg rounded up the day's health care news, punditry and polling, and told us about the "forbidden words" in ACA reporting: wait and see. Joan covered the state of play on filibuster reform, what we were likely to see and when. And yes, we hedged a little bit when it came to the bottom line question of whether or not it would really happen, or whether we'd see another deal. Then, an extensive check-in on the show comments from jimstaro on "keeping your plan," enemy of the people on filibuster reform & the House's "Hastert rule," and Doctor Who on his evolving position on Senate rules reform. Lastly, David Dayen's "JPMorgan's bait-and-switch: The ballyhooed settlement is just a scam!"
