YES!!!! Bernie Sanders Joins Obama's Call To Abolish The Filibuster!!!

THANK YOU!!!

x

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Thursday agreed with former President Obama's proposal to eliminate the Senate filibuster in order to pass the Voting Rights Act.

Why it matters: Sanders rejected abolishing the filibuster during the third Democratic primary debate in September 2o19, suggesting that congressional Democrats could instead pass progressive policies by attaching them to budget reconciliation bills, which cannot be filibustered by the minority party, according to Senate rules.

What they're saying: “President Obama is absolutely right. It is an outrage that modern-day poll taxes, gerrymandering, I.D. requirements, and other forms of voter suppression still exist today,” Sanders wrote on Twitter.

That’s all I ever wanted from him. Thank you, Senator Sanders. Let’s win the White House and the Senate and push through John Lewis’ legacy. Click below to donate and get involved with Biden and these Senate Democrats campaigns:
