McConnell’s Principles Demand That Chuck Schumer Will Control The Senate No Matter Which Party Is In Majority [Buck Throckmorton]

Here is an unsurprising development, Mitch McConnell has taken a very principled stand, publicly proclaiming that only Democrats are allowed to change Senate rules, and that Chuck Schumer will be in control of the 2021-2022 Senate no matter which party wins a Senate majority.

To be fair, he didn’t word it exactly like that, but that is the effect.

Democratic insiders set up war room to quickly kill the filibuster

Schumer: Senate Democrats would ditch filibuster if needed to push Biden’s agenda through

Barack Obama and Harry Reid are openly calling for the end of the filibuster if the Democrats take control of the Senate. (Obama calls it racist, of course.) Schumer is openly hinting that he’ll eliminate the filibuster if Biden is elected. So in response, McConnell boldly announces that a Republican majority means the filibuster stays in place.

McConnell: Democrats would disfigure Senate by nixing filibuster

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) ripped Democrats on Monday over talk of nixing the legislative filibuster if they win back the majority even as they've used the procedural tactic to block recent GOP legislation. "This threat to permanently disfigure, to disfigure the Senate, has been the latest growing drumbeat in the modern Democratic Party's war against our governing institutions," McConnell said from the Senate floor.

In other words, McConnell has announced that if Republicans hold the Senate, Schumer will have the ability to block any GOP legislation with only 40 Democrat Senators. But If the Democrats win control, then Schumer can pass any legislation with only 50 Senators. Heads Schumer wins. Tails Schumer wins. This type of pre-planned and orchestrated failure is what the GOPe calls “principles.”
