Armed with total control of the federal government, the Democrats are wasting no time trying to ram their entire socialist agenda into law.
The Senate filibuster is the one obstacle left in their way.
And all hell broke loose in the Senate after Chuck Schumer was given this one warning about ending the filibuster.
The Senate is currently split 50/50 between the two parties with Kamala Harris serving as the tie-breaking vote, giving the Democrats the majority in the upper chamber.
However, under current Senate rules, it takes 60 votes to end debate and bring a bill to the floor for a vote.
Democrats need the support of every Senator to end the filibuster and ram through their radical agenda with a simple majority vote.
And right now the entire left is putting enormous pressure on Senate Democrats to support changing the rules to allow Chuck Schumer to pass everything from laws creating multiple new states to implementing universal mail-in voting, dissolving voter ID, granting amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens, and packing the Supreme Court without the support of any Republicans.
However, in a fiery speech from the floor, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell just sent a stern warning to Chuck Schumer that could make him think twice before he moves forward with ending the filibuster.
“None of us have served one minute in a Senate that was completely drained of comedy and consent. This is an institution that requires united consent to turn the lights on before noon, to proceed with a garden variety floor speech, to dispense with the reading of lengthy legislative text, to schedule committee business to move even non-controversial nominees at anything besides a snail pace,” McConnell stated.
“I want our colleagues to imagine a world where every single task, every one of them, requires a physical quorum, which by the way the Vice President does not count in determining a quorum,” McConnell added.
Should Chuck Schumer and the Democrats end the filibuster, McConnell is warning that Republicans will use procedural tools at their disposal to shut down the Senate with delays, quorum calls, and hours of debate and endless procedural votes.
McConnell also reminded Schumer of the old saying, “never give a power to your friends that your enemies will one day inherit.”
So if Democrats do end the filibuster, when Republicans take back the majority, which will eventually happen, they will use the same tactics to swiftly pass the conservative wish list of defunding Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities, passing a national right to work law, instituting protections for the unborn, and national Constitutional Carry.
And Chuck Schumer knows McConnell isn’t joking around given the fact that McConnell made the Democrats pay for eliminating the filibuster for lower court judges by confirming over 200 circuit and district court judges as well as filling three vacancies on the Supreme Court when the GOP took back the majority.
