Why not just declare the senate rule unconstitutional
as it clearly is. A senate rule can not trump Article II
Section 2 paragraph 2. When not otherwise stated as in
the case of treaties a simple majority has always been
the default. The senate can make rules for themselves as
long as they do not conflict with the constitution. What
am I missing here?

The Sente has been dysfunctional on the point of unlimited debate and unanimous consent for quite awhile. They like being dysfunctional. The public lacks the wisdom to see it, and the will to make it stop.
