Was That So Hard?

The AP does filibuster reporting right.
In mostly party-line roll calls, senators voted 62-34 against the GOP package and 51-43 for the Democratic version, with each falling short of the 60 votes needed for approval.
I suppose its too much to ask for the writers here to observe that 60 vote approval was not the norm of Senate operations until recently, but ... baby steps.
