U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement after President Biden’s remarks at today’s press conference.
“Senator Biden was a relentless defender of the filibuster — but now that President Biden looks in the mirror and sees FDR, he’s keeping the door open for a complete 180 to blow up the institution he spent four decades defending. He was right when he summed it up this way numerous times: ‘the Senate ought not act rashly by changing its rules to satisfy a strong-willed majority.'”
