(RepublicanWire.org) – For the first time since being sworn into office, President Joe Biden, who as a United States Senator was a “traditionalist” who always supported the filibuster rule that requires a 60 vote Senate supermajority to pass most (not all) legislation, has changed his mind and says the Democrats should cast the filibuster rule aside to pass “voting rights” legislation.
You can watch two videos concerning this significant development below.
The first video is of Biden answering questions during an interview with ABC News, during which he says he now supports casting the filibuster rule aside if that’s the only way to pass federal voting rights legislation.
The second video is of White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirming that Biden does indeed support killing the filibuster so that federal legislation can be passed by the Democrats that could supersede state voting laws the Democrats believe are racist and too restrictive.
Do you agree or disagree with Biden’s change of heart regarding the Senate filibuster rule and voting rights legislation? Why or why not? Do you believe the voting laws being passed by some Republican state legislatures like those in Texas and Georgia are racist? Why or why not?
