Joe Biden Warned Republicans Against Eliminating the Filibuster in 2005: “I pray God when the Democrats take back control, we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing”

Joe Biden Warned Republicans Against Eliminating the Filibuster in 2005: “I pray God when the Democrats take back control, we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing”

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) 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 eliminating 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.

Watch:

These are not the only two that have said this; here is Feinstein:

“I don’t believe in doing that. I think the filibuster serves a purpose. It is not often used, it’s often less used now than when I first came, and I think it’s part of the Senate that differentiates itself.”

Kamala said the same:

Elizabeth Warran as well:

When the Democrats aren’t in the majority, they feel the Filibuster is the most important tool. Now that they are, they want to do away with it.

They did the same thing with the nuclear option when they could force a stop on the Filibuster and elect in Judges by a simple majority. When it was a sure thing they were going to lose, the majority moved to reverse this so the Republicans could do the same; it backfired on them and enabled the Republicans to put a record number of justices in power.

This whole move by the Democrats is short-sighted if they pass the removal of the Filibuster; I am willing to put up money on a bet if they lose control of the Senate this fall, they will move between the election and when the new term starts to try to put the Filibuster back in place. If they do, the first thing the GOP should do is put it back in effect and let the Democrats see why this was not a good idea.
