IN CASE YOU MISSED IT… Sen. Rick Scott in Fox News: Biden and Schumer’s Shameless Filibuster Hypocrisy

January 14, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In case you missed it, Senator Rick Scott wrote an op-ed for Fox News in response to President Biden and Senate Democrats complete hypocrisy shown in their attempts to end the filibuster rule.


In the op-ed, Senator Rick Scott wrote, “I’ve only been in Washington for three years, but one thing I’ve noticed is that career politicians seem to coincidentally forget everything they’ve said in the past. It happens in Congress all the time, but the flip-flops we are seeing from Senate Democrats right now on the filibuster is a case study in career politician amnesia. 


For decades, the legislative filibuster has served as a defining rule of the United States Senate. The filibuster requires a 60-vote threshold to end debate on pending legislation, protects the minority party’s rights, fosters bipartisan cooperation and safeguards the interests of millions of Americans.

Here’s what’s strange (or not so strange, if you know how things work in Washington).  So many Senate Democrats who are fighting to eliminate this long-standing rule were once, and in most cases very recently, its most vocal supporters.


For decades, Democrats defended the filibuster as a vital and necessary rule to protect minority party rights. Now that Democrats have the majority, too many only care about one thing – radically transforming America and doing whatever they can to hold on to power.


So why the change of heart? Why are Democrats willing to be so blatantly hypocritical and flip-flop in such dramatic fashion?


The answer is simple. Democrats want to do whatever it takes to keep themselves in power. That’s why they’re pushing a bill that would completely upend our current election system. They know if they pull this off, and pass their radical, dangerous bill to federalize elections and gut Voter ID laws across the country, it will effectively secure their hold on power in Washington.


Democrats can posture all they want, but the American people see them for what they really are – self-interested, power-hungry career politicians.”
