These Senate Republicans have made a public statement to oppose putting an end to the ongoing obstruction of Democrat's legislative filibuster. In fact, these Senators signed on to a letter authored by Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) and Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) sent to Sen. Mitch McConnell stating they are "opposing any effort to curtail the existing rights and prerogatives (including the 60 rule vote to end the Democrat filibuster) of Senators to engage in full, robust, and extended debate as we (the Senate) consider legislation before the body in the future.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell agrees with them.
Regarding the letter, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) noted that "Democrats want the Senate to work, and we are willing to partner with our colleagues across the aisle if we can get things done for the American people. We have a long way to go to heal the wounds between our two parties, but this letter is a small first step towards that important goal.”
So, these 30 Senate Republicans, by refusing to stop the Democratic filibuster, want to allow the ongoing obstruction of Democrats in the name of “healing.” Conservative Republicans know that Democrats will not cross over the aisle to help pass a conservative agenda. Democrats oppose a conservative agenda that includes repealing Obamacare, funding the border wall, defunding sanctuary cities, passing Kate’s Law, defunding Planned Parenthood, and applying the Hyde Amendment to ensure federal tax dollars do not fund abortion.
Senate Democrats have been obstructionists to a conservative agenda. Sen. Coons’s statement that Democrats "are willing to partner with our colleagues (Republicans) across the aisle if we can get things done for the American people” is an empty promise to pass conservative legislation.Keeping the filibuster is nothing more than a mechanism for Democrats and liberal Republicans to further capitulate to the left. This is by intention.
