Deconstruction Beginning?

Vice-President Joe Biden makes a few noises about the supposed dangers of the filibuster (which conveniently come once Democrats hold power):
"As long as I have served ... I've never seen, as my uncle once said, the Constitution stood on its head as they've done. This is the first time every single solitary decisions has required 60 senators," he said at a Florida fundraiser, according to the pool report. “No democracy has survived needing a super majority."
Is the White House going to ratchet up its rhetoric against some of the procedural checks on its power?
