After Joe Biden Takes Sides On Filibuster – Mitch McConnell Says He Could Shut Down The Senate

What’s Happening:

A lot has been said about the filibuster, these days. It is the one thing Republicans have in the Senate to block Joe’s runaway agenda.

It looked like the rule would be sticking around. But after Democrats realized they’d have to—GASP—work with Republicans, they’re back to talking about getting rid of it.

Joe Biden, who is basically a walking rubber stamp for the left, agreed with Chuck Schumer the filibuster needs to go.

I guess both of them aren’t paying attention to what Mitch McConnell is saying.

From Fox News:

McConnell on Tuesday warned of a “scorched earth” landscape if Democrats end the filibuster…

“Let me say this very clearly for all 99 of my colleagues: Nobody serving in this chamber can even begin — can even begin to imagine — what a completely scorched earth Senate would look like,” McConnell said in a Senate speech.

McConnell said the partisan gridlock of the Trump and Obama eras would look like “child’s play” compared to what’s to come.

Democrats seem to think because they have a slim majority in Congress, they can throw their weight around like dictators.

But that’s far from the reality. The Senate is a 50-50 split. There are plenty of measures and protocols that require Republican support.

Harris can’t bail them out all the time with a tie-breaking vote. Most of the time, votes require a majority of just senators.

McConnell is warning them that if Democrats are stupid enough to end the filibuster, then the Senate will come grinding to a halt.

Democrats should pay very close attention to what McConnell is saying. What we are witnessing is basically history repeating itself.

The last time Democrats called the shots, they voted to end the filibuster for judicial appointments. Republicans warned them back then that move would come back to bite them.

And it did.

This time, the consequences would be much direr. All it takes is a few key victories in 2022 for Republicans to get back Congress.

If Democrats get rid of the filibuster now, all bets are off.

Is Joe Biden and Schumer that stupid? I guess we’ll find out.

Key Takeaways:

  • Joe Biden has taken sides to end the filibuster in the Senate.
  • McConnell is warning them of what will happen if they do that.
  • The Senate, he warns, will grind to a halt—with nothing getting done.
