This is only half a rhetorical question. Because I think we all know that the use of the filibuster has expanded and evolved greatly over the last twenty years — mainly but by no means only on the part of Republicans. But back in 1994 — even though health care never even came out of committee let alone a floor vote — I don’t remember it really being raised as a possibility that health care would need to surmount a filibuster. But am I misremembering?
