Debunking The Hypocrite Republican Liars -‘Senate Republicans open door to weakening the filibuster’

mcconnell2

‘Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is opening the door to changing the filibuster in response to growing pressure from Republicans angered that Democrats have blocked legislation from reaching the White House’.

‘McConnell has appointed a special task force to explore changes to the filibuster rule and other procedural hurdles — including whether to eliminate filibusters on motions to proceed to legislation. That’s a tactic the minority often uses to shut down a bill before amendments can be considered’.

‘McConnell, a Senate traditionalist, doesn’t want to do away with the filibuster. He and other Republicans fear a decision to gut the filibuster further would boomerang on the party — especially if Democrats retake the Senate in next year’s elections’.

‘In 2013, Reid and Democrats voted to eliminate the filibuster on most nominations. To do so, they used a legislative maneuver known as the “nuclear option” that allows changes to Senate rules to be adopted by a Senate majority’.
