Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on Monday that any
attempt by Democrats to change filibuster rules would “poison” party
relations in the upper chamber even further, adding that it
would “undermine the very purpose of the Senate” and amount to
“an affront to the American people.”
“Do they really think they’re going to be in the majority forever?”
McConnell asked of Democrats on the Senate floor, suggesting that if any
filibuster rules go into effect, Republicans would have the upper hand
should they retake the majority in the future.
