Joe Biden has always supported the filibuster.
Even with all the turmoil in the Senate regarding voting bills, Biden has stated that the filibuster prevents one party from just ramming through legislation.
However, that now appears to have changed with Democrats getting a taste of what they did to Trump and the 2022 elections looming.
Another Biden Flip-Flop
Biden’s agenda has shifted like the winds during hurricane season for most of his career.
However, there were two mainstays for him… the Hyde Amendment and the filibuster.
Until Joe Biden moved into the White House, he continued to support both, but that is now changing.
Biden knows this administration is losing ground, and with that ground will more than likely come a change of power in Congress.
To that point, Biden knows he now has about 15 months to get as much legislation passed as possible before he becomes a lame duck.
Biden has already flipped on the Hyde Amendment, and now he appears ready to flip on the filibuster as well.
Reports started to surface this week that after meeting with top Democrat leaders, Biden was ready to support eliminating the filibuster.
In order to do that, Biden will need moderates on both sides of the fence to concede, which is what he reportedly told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to start working on this week.
With the 2022 elections right around the corner and red states putting voting integrity laws into place, Biden knows he needs to get the Democrat voting plan approved so they can open up the polls without much scrutiny.
So, he is clearly hoping a shortsighted vision will give the Democrats long-term power.
When the White House was asked directly about Biden supporting the removal of the filibuster, White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre sidestepped the question, responding, “Right now, the goal on voting rights legislation is for the Senate working on this to come together and see if they can produce a compromise.
“The president is hopeful that they can, that this group can do that.
“If they can do that, then they need to go line up the votes.”
Get ready for the massive power grab attempt, patriots, because it is about to happen.
