Biden flips on the filibuster — again

President Joe Biden has changed his position on abolishing the legislative filibuster, saying that he supports keeping the action after previously indicating that he would support abolishing it. 

According to The Washington Examiner Biden’s Wednesday evening comments are a complete reversal of his earlier suggestions that offered the left hope he would get behind their decision to try to do away with the action.

When he was questioned about whether he felt the measure to remove the filibuster was something he put a higher priority on over voting measures Biden made a completely unexpected and seemingly off the cuff answer:

“No, it’s not. There’s no reason to protect it other than you’re going to throw the whole Congress into chaos, and nothing will get done,” the president said at the live televised event.

According to Kaylee McGhee White, a commentary contributor at the Examiner, the president is absolutely correct about the far-reaching ramifications of doing away with the filibuster:

“The filibuster, the term now used to refer to any legislative stall tactic that forces parties to win over 60 votes to move forward on most Senate bills, serves an important purpose,” White said.

“It protects the rights of the minority and forces majorities to either compromise or win broader electoral mandates. Although it was not part of the original constitutional structure of the Senate, the filibuster has helped preserve the Founders’ vision by stimulating debate and deliberation, making it difficult to pass sweeping legislation along party lines with every change of government.”

To do away with the filibuster would make the Senate “no better than the House of Representatives – a chaotic group of legislators more interested in performative action than substantive lawmaking,” White went on to say.

Why the reversal in opinion? That is as yet unclear. However, what is not unclear is the relief many conservatives will feel if the push to get rid of the filibuster comes to an end.
