. . .Two Democrats have confirmed they are unwilling to change the Senate’s filibuster rule, which requires 60 votes to advance most legislation, Just the News reported.
The two Democrats are Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona.
Manchin wrote in a commentary this week that the filibuster “is a critical tool to protecting” the voice of small and rural states “and our democratic form of government.”
“I have said it before and will say it again to remove any shred of doubt: There is no circumstance in which I will vote to eliminate or weaken the filibuster. The time has come to end these political games, and to usher a new era of bipartisanship where we find common ground on the major policy debates facing our nation,” he wrote. . .
“When you have a place that’s broken and not working, and many would say that’s the Senate today, I don’t think the solution is to erode the rules,” Sinema said in a report in the Wall Street Journal. “I think the solution is for senators to change their behavior and begin to work together, which is what the country wants us to do.” (Read more from “Democrats Throw Roadblock in Front Of Biden’s Extreme Agenda” HERE)
