Schumer ’yielding to the pressure of the hard left’ on filibuster: McConnell

Senate Minority Leader McConnell lambasted Democratic efforts to abolish the legislative filibuster Wednesday. McConnell reiterated his staunch opposition to overturning the rule requiring 60 members to end debate on most topics and move forward to a vote. ’He is yielding to the pressure of the hard left to turn the Senate into a speedway,’ McConnell said about Senate Majority Leader Schumer.

Well maybe if you didn't abuse it to gridlock the government Moscow Mitch then we wouldn't be here.

He's not saying eliminate the filibuster, he's saying return to a talking filibuster like it was originally intended. Make them stand up there and talk, make a rule that it has to be on topic and you can't just stand up there and read children's books. Make the onus on the one using the filibuster, like how it should be. Mitch has bastardized it and his threats are empty.
