Democrat senators (with the exception of Senator Joe Manchin- WV) have pledged to eliminate the filibuster to prevent Republicans from preventing them from passing their universal vote-cheating bill HR1.
Democrat Senate Leader Chuck Schumer, who voted 500 times over the past 23 years to maintain the filibuster, is teaming up with Joe Biden to strongarm Democrats, who’ve also fought back against eliminating the filibuster, to what else?—End the filibuster!
Here’s Chuck in 2005 saying that eliminating the filibuster is an “abuse of power,” and in the video below, calling it a “doomsday for democracy” if the filibuster were eliminated.

Chuck’s not the only one promising to end the filibuster. Joe Biden has publicly stated that he stands with Chuck Schumer and the other conniving Democrat Senators (minus Joe Manchin) in their efforts to remove the filibuster.
Joe hasn’t always been in favor of eliminating the filibuster…
Curiously, in 2005, then-Senator Joe Biden took a hard-line position on the elimination of the filibuster when he warned Republicans who held a majority in the Senate.
“[Republicans] may own the field right now, but you won’t own it forever. And I pray God when the Democrats take back control, we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing,” an animated Biden said. He added, “History will judge this Republican majority harshly…harshly!” Senator Joe Biden threatened.

It’s incredible how Democrat senators are willing to endure the shame and humiliation they will surely get for eliminating the filibuster to get their crooked vote-cheating bill passed. They know a little embarrassment is worth it; however, if they can forever change the way Americans vote through universal mail-in-voting with no ID requirement—giving cheaters a massive advantage and potentially making Republicans the permanent minority party in America.
