Why Change The Rules When You Can Ignore Them?

That’s what Will Baude argues at Volokh:

What has the Senate actually done so far, with respect to the filibuster? Some of the reports of what happened today say that the Senate has adopted “new rules” eliminating the filibuster for some purposes. I’m not sure that’s true, in a formal sense. As I understand what happened, the Senate voted to ignore the current filibuster rule (on constitutional grounds). It did not vote to change it.

Well, given Reid and Obama, it does seem just as likely.
