The thing is, I think right now there are not 51 Senate votes in favor of ending the filibuster on legislation, precisely because of the reasoning that I gave: it would be of no immediate practical benefit. You're actually more likely to get the necessary 51 votes at some hypothetical future point when the Democrats control the House.

"The government will guarantee [the nuclear power plant constructors] a price of up to 92.50 pounds ($150) per megawatt-hour of electricity for 35 years"---isn't this more than Germany (or anywhere else) does for solar power?
