Lindsey Graham: “I will not be extorted”

Sen Lindsey Graham says that he is fed up with Democrats threatening to change the rules if they can’t get enough votes. He says he refuses to be extorted.

The problem here is that they can’t do away with almost any of their bills unless they can eliminate the filibuster first. They could do that on a simple majority but both Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are resistant to that idea and the Democrats can’t afford to lose even one vote.

Graham spoke with Chris Matthews, who somehow escaped CNN, about lowering the standard for the filibuster or doing away with it completely. One idea is to return to the talking filibuster. Under that course of action, you can delay a vote only for as long as you can stand on your feet and continue to talk.

Graham said he would talk all night. But, that type of filibuster would be worthless because they can be broken by the majority every time.
