Dems promise to ditch filibuster and pass abortion and voting laws if they win midterms

On NBC's "Meet the Press," vice president Kamala Harris stated that if Democrats get two more seats in the U.S. Senate, they will end the filibuster rule, allowing them to pass laws pertaining to voting and abortion. 

According to Breitbart News, Harris said, "In less than two months, we are looking at a midterm election in which so much is on the line. Take, for example, the issue of choice.

"The United States Supreme Court in the Dobbs decision just took away a constitutional right that had been recognized from the women of America from the people of America."

She continued, "Well, how does that relate to the midterms? Our president has said he will not let the filibuster get in the way.

"If the Senate though a majority voter, votes to pass the Women's Health Protection Act, he will sign it into law. You know what that means in the midterms?

"We need to hold on to the Senate and get two more then we can put into the law the protections of Roe v. Wade. Everything is on the line when you think about the millions of women and the people in America that care about them who understand the significance of women making the decisions about her own body."

When asked by Anchor Chuck Todd, "If the Democrats get 52 Senate seats or more legislative filibuster gone? Or just on this issue?" the vice president seemed to indicate the administration's priorities.

"The president has been clear on this issue and on another very important issue which is voting rights," Harris said.
