Republicans used the "nuclear option" to reduce the time of the debate in favor of changing the rules of the Senate and in most of the presidential candidates.

Senate Democrats called the decision unnecessary and detrimental to the Senate precedent, and was another sign of the upcoming demise of the filibuster.
