Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling a vote next week to try and kill the filibuster.

It’s a desperate effort to jam through questionable bills before voters kick out the Democrat bums in the midterm elections for caving to the whack-a-doodle progressive wing of the party. 

Sure, Democrats usually love the filibuster, as it’s the only means they have to affect policy when they are in the minority. 

Like when Schumer wanted to “build a firewall around the legislative filibuster” during the confirmation of now-Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch of Colorado, who was nominated by President Trump.

“Without the 60-vote threshold for legislation, the Senate becomes a majoritarian institution like the House, much more subject to the winds of short-term electoral change. No Senator would like to see that happen, so let’s find a way to further protect the 60-vote rule for legislation,” Schumer said.

Colorado U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet is also a big flip flopper when it comes to the filibuster, as we will continue to report until the cows come home because he’s a hypocrite. 

But now Bennet’s reasons appear to be much more self-centered.

Bennet’s proposal to extend the temporary child tax credit that was used as economic relief this year is what effectively killed President Biden’s Build Back Broke Bill last month.

Then there was Bennet’s humiliating defeat on his beloved CORE Act, the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Act.

Yes, Bennet will flip flop and vote along with Schumer to kill the filibuster, and it sure looks like revenge for his legislative failures.

But if America’s luck holds, Democrats will also fail to pass the filibuster death sentence bill as well.
