Skip to comments.Reid says Biden should end Senate filibuster after 3 weeks

Former Senate leader Harry Reid says if Democrats win the presidency and the Senate, Joe Biden should take no more than three weeks to test bipartisanship before ending the filibuster so Democrats can overcome what they call Republican obstruction and pass bills.
The retired Nevada Democrat told The Associated Press in an interview that he understands Biden wants to work with Republicans, as the former vice president and Delaware senator has in the past. But Reid said there is just too much that needs to be done in the country to wait around trying to reach agreements under the decades-old Senate practice of requiring 60 votes to advance legislation.
Biden who wants always to get along with people I understand that, Reid said by telephone from Nevada.
We should give the Republicans a little bit of time, to see if theyre going to work with him, he said. But the times going to come when hes going to have to move in and get rid of the filibuster.
Asked how long Biden should wait it out before changing the rules, Reid said: No more than three weeks.

Harry Reid is an evil POS
Like I said to others, there is too much overseas support for the left-wing insurrection for this to be a civil war.
Be a shame if he had another home gym “accident”...
Republicans should do it if we win in 2020 or 2022 and start repealing stuff.
Theyve clearly signaled what their plans are should they ever win the Senate. Time for us to do the same. Id love to be able to jam conservative bills down their throats like they did to us during the Obama debacle.
...Biden should take no more than three weeks to test bipartisanship before ending the filibuster...
How, executive order? Reid's even more partisan and stupid than he was when the Mob was telling him how to vote as Senator.
Why not end partisan obstructionism the way Saddam Hussein did.
Emergency powers, after “right-wing extremists” set fire to the Capitol.
I think at the 3-week point....his competency will already be questioned, and some folks will be pushing to have him removed...paving the way to President Harris.
Don’t give the left any more ideas.
Besides, Saddam, as a Ba’athist (thus national socialist) reflects their thinking to a T.
They don’t need me to come up with ideas. They kept questioning Dubya’s motives for invading Iraq, but their own motives for opposing it at the first sign of trouble is open to question, too. Saddam was their guy. They have wet dreams about coolly smoking a cigar while Republican lawmakers are taken out and shot, and the RINOs start to cheer their actions.
The Rat Party has to destroy America to find out what’s in it.
The pic at the link - is that really Harry? He looks like he’s trying to be Red from The Blacklist, only 40 years older.
F”Joe Biden should take no more than three weeks to test bipartisanship before ending the filibuster”
Sure. Democrats are so bipartisan that you need a shovel.
The Mormon has a revelation!
At this time he's a nobody, so he can't end the filibuster.
I watched the video, and the only way this could happen would be if CWII erupts and such executions take place in the name of of getting rid of traitors. Otherwise this is both illegal as Hell and a fantasy.
However, if CWII did happen and there was such a bloody purge, might as well do a Stalin grade cleaning of the military’s officer staff.
If Trump wins, I have a feeling a cleaning will be coming, only legally done.
No ifs about it. Trump will win. Swamp will be drained, but without the cigar and the firing squad. If it were the Dems, there’d be a firing squad alright. But no cigar, reefers instead.
