Tonight, President Joe Biden told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he supports bringing back the talking filibuster. This is the first time Pres. Biden has expressed openness to reforming the archaic Senate rule.
Battle Born Collective Executive Director Adam Jentleson released the following statement in response:
“President Biden’s willingness to reform the Senate filibuster suggests he will not let a Jim Crow relic that has no place in the Constitution stand in the way of the results he promised to deliver. There is a long way to go in this fight, but this is significant and we look forward to the president’s continued leadership on this issue.”
