With Democrats controlling the Senate and the House of Representatives, the filibuster is the one remaining element stopping the left from passing whatever they please. Democrats are aware of this which is why the vast majority of left-wing lawmakers aim to eliminate the Senate filibuster.
Right now, President Biden is working day and night to alter the current U.S. tax code. The reality is that Biden plans to tax Americans and businesses in order to pay for expensive, government-run programs. Thankfully, though, the Senate filibuster is blocking this and Democrats don’t stand a chance of getting ten Republican senators on board with Biden’s tax hikes.
It turns out now that increasing taxes on the American public is not popular. A new survey by Monmouth University shows that more than half of the nation is supportive of the Senate filibuster blocking Biden’s tax hike.
