Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema Is Against Eliminating Filibuster

And furthermore, she's reportedly "not open to changing her mind."

Democratic Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema will not support eliminating the filibuster and her mind cannot be changed, according to a spokesperson.

As Democrats now control the House, Senate and White House, there has been discussion about possibly voting to eliminate the filibuster. Abolishing the filibuster would allow any legislation to pass with a simple majority. With Sinema coming out against abolishing the filibuster, it makes it highly unlikely it could happen, as Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin has also said he will not vote to do so.

"Kyrsten is against eliminating the filibuster, and she is not open to changing her mind about eliminating the filibuster," a spokesperson for Sinema told the Washington Post on Monday.

The pressure that will be brought to bear will be crushing.

I hope Democrats go too far and anger these two.
