A reporter asked President Biden during Thursday’s news conference if he agreed with Barack Obama that the filibuster is ‘relic’ of the Jim Crow era.
“Yes,” Biden replied.
But multiple times through the years, Vice President Harris and many other Democrats have embraced the legislative filibuster, which sets a 60-vote hurdle in the Senate for any bills to make it to a final roll call.
Harris signed onto a letter in 2017 that was led by Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Chris Coons, D-Del., asking Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to leave the filibuster in place.
