Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Changing the 50% plus one vote to two-thirds rule means that the majority rules. Giving power to the super-majority leads to delay in passing bills and it makes it harder to achieve good change. The minority would also block the preference of the majority.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
