Senator Chuck Schumer did something Democrats don’t often do and that was admit the truth. Yesterday on Fox News Schumer admitted to Chris Wallace that the only reason he has a problem with the filibuster is because his party now has the majority.
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., acknowledged his past opposition to changing the filibuster rules to weaken the Senate minoroty, but said that he has changed his mind now that he is part of the Senate majority.
Fox News’ Chris Wallace reminded Schumer of the days when he used to praise the Senate for slowing down the legislative process. “Senator, what’s the difference except for the fact that you’re now in the majority?” Wallace asked on Fox News Sunday.
“Nothing,” Schumer replied immediately. “No, nothing, that’s exactly right. And the filibuster, I am not for going to a House of Representatives where 51 votes decides everything. But the filibuster has been overused.”
What a creep.
