Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) warned that Democrats will pay a political price if they move to eliminate the filibuster — even if the effort fails, ABC News reports.
Said McConnell: “But too many of our colleagues across the aisle still want to respond to a 50-50 Senate with a rule-breaking power grab. Voting to break this institution will not be a free vote or a harmless action, even if their effort fails. An unprincipled attempt at grabbing power is not harmless just because it fails. Voting to break the Senate is not cost-free just because a bipartisan majority of your colleagues have the wisdom to stop you.”Save to Favorites
