Schumer Says Dems May Eliminate the Filibuster if They Retake the Senate in November
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is threatening to scrap the filinuster rule should the Senate flip to the Democrats this November.
Townhall reports that Schumer said:
“We have a moral imperative to the people of America to get a whole lot done if we get the majority, which, God willing, we will, and keep it in the House, and Biden becomes president, and nothing is off the table. We will do what it takes to get this done…some Republicans might work with us. But we’re going to have to get it done, whether they work with us or not.”
Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has also called for getting rid of the Senate filibuster rule if necessary.
Should the filibuster rule be scrapped, a Senate could push through legislation with a simple majority of 51 votes, rather than the 60 currently needed for the Senate to pass a bill.
It’s very obvious what Schumer and the Democrat party is after—they want to control you. Because all the Left cares about is power. Never let them near it.
