Chuck Schumer rejects Mitch McConnell’s Senate filibuster demand On Friday, and like I said on my show yesterday Mitch this is what you get for turning Rino, and backstabbing Trump, and the USA. Nothing you will do will go through now as you slept with the enemy, and now we’re all screwed Mitch. You screwed the country old man.
Majority Leader Schumer turned down a request by Minority Leader McConnell to include a protection for the filibuster in a Senate power-sharing agreement, calling the request “unacceptable.” Schumer added that he wants the same agreement that was established for the last 50-50 Senate in 2001, and called McConnell’s request an “extraneous demand.” The minority leader noted that he refused former president Trump’s demand to end the filibuster in 2017 and that Democrats have used it many times themselves.

Mitch McConnell is so concerned that his own obstruction will drive Democrats to “go nuclear,” he is threatening to paralyze the Senate until Chuck Schumer agrees to take filibuster elimination off the table https://t.co/yUSG5yTf70— New York Magazine (@NYMag) January 22, 2021
