Mitch McConnell loves the filibuster when he can wield it as a cudgel in the minority. It is a relic of a racist past used in the Jim Crow era by Southerners to prevent the Northern majority from passing legislation to favor civil rights. It was used as a tool of obstruction against Obama for eight years by a man who vowed to make him a one term President. The filibuster is NOT in the Constitution. The framers never set up a construct to allow a minority of Senators to regularly obstruct the majority. To only see the hypocrisy of both our GOP Senator and McConnell, we can look no further than blocking Merrick Garland for almost a year while shoving through Amy Coney Barrett in 8 days before an election. It is clear if the filibuster stands, the GOP will keep the Senate in its current state of gridlock and then blame Democrats for it in 2022. It is past time to get rid of a process that allows the power to stop legislation supported by the vast majority. End it today and get to work.
