Hillary Clinton says that the Senate Democrats should “adjust” the rules to help push their radical agenda through.
According to Fox News:
Quoting the president who signed the Voting Rights Act, she tweeted: “‘The right to vote is the basic right without which all others are meaningless,’ Lyndon B. Johnson said. ‘It gives people, people as individuals, control over their own destinies.’”
She added: “It’s time Senate Democrats adjust the rules to protect Americans’ right to vote.”
Her push for the “adjustment” to Senate rules comes as Democrats have pushed to end the filibuster in order to pass legislation. In September, Clinton claimed that Republicans “do not respect the rule of law” and therefore Democrats should keep pushing to end the filibuster.
“Keeping the filibuster now, when you’re dealing with a political party that does not respect the rule of law, does not even respect the process unless it works for them, you know, witness what they did to Merrick Garland when President Obama had every right to appoint a Supreme Court justice,” she reportedly said during an interview.
Ending or watering down the filibuster is an explosive proposal that would make it much more difficult for Republicans to oppose the White House and House of Representatives – both of which are dominated by Democrats.
