Biden Open to Eliminating Filibuster

“President Joe Biden said Thursday he’s open to supporting the elimination of the Senate’s filibuster to pass voting-rights legislation and other bills that Republicans have blocked,” USA Today reports.

Said Biden: “We’re going to have to move to the point where we fundamentally alter the filibuster.”

CNN: “The political reality, of course, is that Biden’s support (or lack thereof) for getting rid of the legislative filibuster is not necessarily indicative of much. Both West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin and Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema have said they oppose getting rid of the filibuster — and Democrats can’t change the Senate rules with all 50 of their side’s votes.”
