Donald Trump is calling for an end to the filibuster in the Senate. His argument appears to be that it does not respect majority rule. here’s the tweet.
If Senate Republicans don’t get rid of the Filibuster Rule and go to a 51% majority, few bills will be passed. 8 Dems control the Senate!
OK. It’s no part of the Constitution. But while we’re up, let’s eliminate the anti-majoritarian Electoral College as well and elect Presidents by majority vote of the American citizens.
And let’s be sure Congressional districts lines are drawn in such a fashion that every vote counts equally. If Democrats get 50% of the House vote in a state, then 50% of the Representatives from that state should be Democrats.
If we’re for democracy, let’s be for democracy.
