Biden says he backs changing Senate filibuster rules

President Joe Biden, during his interview to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, said he supports changing the Senate filibuster rules to bring back the so-called ’talking filibuster.’ Biden said, ’You’ve got to work for the filibuster. It is almost getting to the point where democracy is having a hard time functioning.’ Earlier, the White House had said the president backed in the current rules.

First, I love how good ole moderate Joe wouldn't answer questions about this during the election. You will notice that Republicans don't do these things. We don't change the voting requirements for federal judge confirmation (we could have many times even long ago in the 50s when we held the cultural institutions) and we don't seriously consider changing the filibuster when we hold the senate. One of the founders biggest concerns was tyranny of the majority. If 100 people are in a room and 51 of them vote to rob the other 49, the vote makes that action no less tyrannical. This concern has only grown as the idea of federalism has shrunk and the federal government has usurped more and more powers. The filibuster is a protection against tyranny. The left does not care because in their zeal and total belief in their moral superiority, they have become tyrants. When they talk about unity what they mean is they require the right to agree or at least comply with them regarding policy. If not, the right needs to be quiet. After all, why would we unify by negotiating with them or allowing for individuality to flourish? The right is evil and bigoted, the holy left certainly cannot unify with that until they conform. It is tyrannical to force people to believe that a man can become a woman by simply saying that they are one. It is tyrannical to force religions to conform their beliefs to the current leftist thinking on sex, gender and birth control. It is tyrannical to take money from one group of people and give it to another group. It is tyrannical to limit people's ability to defend themselves.

He didn't say he wants to end the filibuster. He said they should have to stand up there and actually filibuster...

The federal gov't should be slow to act and require more than a bare majority to move. If an issue is so urgent States can act. Counties can act. Even, gasp, individual towns can act.

Of course, since your far left agenda is NOT supported by the majority of the country. Our country was founded on the basis of compromise. Compromise is the ONLY way to make all people happy. This is why you did NOT win a majority and lost seats in house. Take that tool away and we can cram all kinds of junk through. Our country is not Junk. It is the greatest thing ever created by men

If someone in the senate wants to filibuster they should actually be forced to stand there and actually filibuster.
