Obama vs facts, #18313 in a series

Obama lies about filibusters :

“You had to cast more votes to break filibusters last year than in the entire 1950s and 1960s combined.  That’s 20 years of obstruction jammed into just one.”

How many filibusters (successful blocking of legislation in the Senate by forcing a failed cloture vote) were there?  Zero.
