It is now absolutely clear that the Democrats will get rid of the filibuster and steamroll their agenda if they win the Senate and keep the House.
How come Republicans never think of these things when they hold the reins of power? Of our elected officials only Democrats seem to understand that this is a war for the future.
Obama proposed a new civil rights act, making Election Day a national holiday, automatically registering everyone to vote, making Puerto Rico and Washington DC states, and then said:
“And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster, another Jim Crow relic, in order to secure the Go-driven rights of every American, then that’s what we should do,” he said.
Apparently now the filibuster is also racist.
