Biden puts GOP on notice, warns he might back scrapping filibuster

President Joe Biden threatened on Thursday that he may throw his weight behind proposed changes to the legislative filibuster in the Senate if it continues to be a roadblock on his key agenda issues.

The president noted his belief the Senate should return to a talking filibuster. The change would shift the requirement for senators to hold the floor in order to block most legislation.

Biden argued the current Senate filibuster has been abused by those in power. His remarks signal his potential support to end the filibuster or modify it in ways favorable to the current Democrat power in the Senate.

“I strongly support moving in that direction,” Biden said concerning the talking filibuster, “in addition to having an open mind about dealing with certain things that are just elemental to the functioning of our democracy, like the right to vote. Like the basic right to vote. We’ve amended the filibuster in the past.”

The Senate stands in a 50-50 tie following the January 2021 Georgia runoff election. Vice President Kamala Harris serves as the tiebreaker vote in such cases.

The current filibuster requires 60 votes in the Senate to move forward with most legislation. This means Democrats need at least 10 Republican senators to join legislation to pass a bill in the Senate.

Republican leaders have noted Biden’s hypocrisy regarding the filibuster change. Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) noted, “Senator Biden was a relentless defender of the filibuster — but now that President Biden looks in the mirror and sees FDR, he’s keeping the door open for a complete 180 to blow up the institution he spent four decades defending.”

Biden’s press conference pointed to his future plans to limit or remove the power of the Senate filibuster. Republicans will continue to carefully guard the requirement, recognizing it as the key to holding back a flood of Biden’s progressive legislation prior to the 2022 midterm election.

  1. Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

        1. GODLESS? so, you condone animals attacking, raping and murdering little kids? I wonder WHO is the Godless one here? I can’t stand sanctimonious big heretics like you… Or maybe you are a pedophile. One thing we know for sure about you … you are all for this kind.

          1. There are Many Pedophile In the Democrat Party And Of course Hollywood.

        2. You would probably be shocked to find out just how many people are of the exact same opinion !!!! LOCK AND LOAD !!!!

      1. you’re so right, but I would like to see this old retard and the street wh<re lined up for target practice.

      2. He needs to be removed and with him his entire cabinet and Pelosi. They are an imminent danger to our lives, our health, wealth and everything else.

      3. Maybe Norm needs to clean up his “potty” mouth. And, maybe Norm is a scumbag pedophile himself.

        1. It sounds to me like you, Suzanne Wood, are the pedo, or at the very least the Biden pedophile sympathizer !!!! NORM IS EXACTLY RIGHT !!!! SCREW YOU AND BIDEN TOO !!!

    1. What is it, with you people, and job listings? Who cares?

      If you want to post something, try twitter, and see how far it gets!

      1. If you don’t like what people write, DON”T read it. plain and simple, you don’t tell people what that they can write or not.

  2. If the Republicans and Rinos can’t find a spine or a set of balls, the filibuster will be a thing of the past and the country along with it !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am 74 years old and I have NEVER seen ANYTHING like this Democrat TRASH in all those years !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Your 100 percent correct. JB should go to the Hanoi Hilton with the rest of his Democommunist buddies. There trash!

      1. Be sure to send Jane Fonda with them to Hanoi and keep her there for life. Many American service men were killed because of her actions. Why were no charges ever filed against her for treason?

    2. I’m 80 and I never have either!! SLOW STUMABLEING JOE and THE HO have no idea how to run the COUNTRY!!!! Biden has had three (3) brain operations…that’s a fact and I don’t think Kamala Harris has a brain!!!!!!!!!!

      1. I do remember those operations on “Sleepy”!! And, Kamala is not only brainless, she’s a proven liar, too!

        The future? I now fear it, & especially for my grandchildren. Someone has to grow a spine, otherwise we’ll be a puppet of the REDS!

      2. i don’t think Biden Should Have been Inagurated He is Mentally incapable of being in the White house And Obama Is not authorised To be in The white House either he should be in prison for the crimes he has committed.

    3. Me either, and so sick of it. Never did I think the illegal president/v/p could be introduced as Crazy Joe and the hoe. So sad all this scum in our government.

    1. That’s not obozo joe talking, it’s the black bozo! behind the scene he’s the one pushing obozo!!!

  3. I agree John. I am also 74 years old, and I too have never seen anything like the Biden administration. More damage in less than 3 months than most presidents cause in 4 years. Unbelievable!!!

    1. JESSE You Are 100 % Right He is Killing OUR COUNRTY HE MUST THINK HE I GOD GET RID OF HIM NOW EVERYONE KNOWS HE CHEATED

  4. Congratulations snowflakes, you just voted for a dictatorship. Republicans better grow a pair and get a spine implant. You will not have a say in our government and will be fraudulently voted out.

    1. You’re right – the word is ‘fraudulently’ – that’s the only way Democrats could get into office. They have to steal and lie. They don’t give a damn about the country!

  5. Hey Joe, who did away with the Nuclear Clause? That one bit you in the tail, didn’t it. Just remember that the Republicans will one day become the majority and it will be the Democrats that pay the price for any change. History is a strange thing. It puts blame where blame is due and you aren’t going to have much of a legacy if you continue on this path.

  6. Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.

  7. The obiden regime is a communist dictatorship that is out to destroy America and Americans for their own greed! They are not and will not back America, Land of the Free! They only support illegals and cow down to China and our other enemies who are now banding together against America! Americans that back them are hopefully seeing all the damage the Washington democrats have done in the past 2 1/2 months!! They have destroted millions of jobs and don’t give a damn about all the lives they have destroyed with their actions. What’s sad is that they can’t wait to hurt and destroy more American lives!! WAKE UP AMERICA!! They know they are doing wrong or else they would not have a ten foot high fence around our Capitol! They are scared to death that they will push Americans of all races to far!!

    1. It’s too bad Trump got removed from office by a fraud election caused by the democRATS!! They wanted Trump out because he was cleaning up Washington’s corruption!!!
      Right now Biden and Harris should be impeached both are dumber than a box of rocks and have no idea what the hell they’re doing…have no idea how to run the country!! I think the majority of Americans know that. They are ruining the country with their stupidy!!!! Harris with the new GREEN DEAL (no cows no fossil fuels) the stumblebum I have no idea where the hell he’s coming from. His speeches are a total disaster!!!

  8. It’s time for all theses Democrats commies to leave Our country ,you don’t belong here in America 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  9. ISN’T IT TIME TO IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

    Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

  10. joey is making such a mess of this country it is unbelievable and only 3 months . What will the country look like in four years. I am not willing to find out. Action must be taken. Do not follow this joey dude, do what is right for America. The border crisis, putting kids in gages without vaccines and 10% have now been found to have CO V 19 or other illness. They are releasing these people into neighborhoods and cities by bus loads, disrupting . Stop doing this! Have you lost your mines, send them back across the river. And why is there not an impeachment proceeding??? What are we waiting for?? The followers are spending our tax payers money instead of helping our homeless, really. What insanity is this?? Did I just wake up on the planet of the idiots? Stop following these stupid policies of this unelected president before any more damage is done. And stop spending our money on these programs and start helping our own people for God sake….. WAKE UP!

  11. Every single democrapic dungbeetle in DC, should be sent to gitmo after they are sentenced for treason, and hung.

  12. China Joe thinks filibuster is code word for feeding the dog. Maybe buster is the name on his wallet.

  13. Goes both ways & GOP better ante up some fight or lose to 1 party state like CA.
    (unless Recall shows otherwise).
    No fillabuster, No USA
    How hard will GOP fight now?
    (minus RINOs)

  14. the clock is ticking as I see many old men like me ( 81 ) are waiting for a leader to head the civil war….I think we have enough ready to to go plus all the millions of hunters sign up now

  15. Here comes the screw job from Biden and the Democrat’s in Congress. They will do as they please to start a war. Enough of this tolotarian control. I feel we are in a dictatorship with Pelosi’s crew in charge of the country.

  16. That person in the Oval Office is senile and doesn’t know if he’s coming or going I say IMPEACH IMPEACH IMPEACH

  17. more political drama
    I was wondering how soon biden will be pardoning himself, his son and his brother–now that is political drama I,’ll get out the popcorn for

  18. Republicans in the Senate should not cooperate with the incompetent president at all anything, especially regarding the filibuster.

  19. Solution to the problem:
    of the press vilifying the police, by accusing the police of hunting down and killing minorities. The press has no evidence of such a trend. They are using this only to increase their ratings and sell papers. This is done by vilifying and endangering law enforcement officers, putting them more at risk for doing their job. The solution is simply to make the media and the press, also print the justification for their reporting, in other words if they can’t report the facts they should not report anything. If they report something that later is found not to be true, they must print a redaction on the front page, that covers at least half of the page, a long with an apology to any that might have been aversely effected by the report. You would soon see better more responsible reporting when the press sees redactions on the front page instead of hiding them in back where they are never seen. I think that all states need to put a law on the books, that would require all papers to put redaction on the front page, a long with an apology to any that may have been aversely effected by the report. Also media outlets could put redactions on their home pages for all to see. Now don’t you think that would be a good thing. To see people like Suckerberg, Darcy, have to take responsibility for reporting on their sites.

  20. Why does Nancy need the National Guard:
    Pelosi needs the NG to protect her while she and the other Democrats are are busy undermining the constitution, and violating their oath of office. In other words they are committing treason, and using the NG for protection while they are doing it, by keeping the people out. Who is visiting the capital with the troops all over the place. Maybe a few Chinese?

  21. Biden at the border:
    This is the mess that a duly unelected president has made for the country. A man who has no idea of what he is doing, and who ever is pulling his strings does not either. They don’t want to call this a crisis that it is challenging, well it is a CHALLENGING CRISIS, a mess of epic proportions that needs a man of epic proportion to solve it. It needs a Trump to trump it. The people now on the thrown have shown that they are not capable of handling the situation, and therefore need to step aside.

  22. I love America. But with all of the Country laughing @ the Ho an Joe fraud, the country is in trouble
