Romney’s strange take on the filibuster.

Filibuster 2

Filibuster 1

 

Update!

 

Coincidentally, Mark Elias was just interviewed on the Nicole Wallace show. Without mentioning Romney, he made exactly the same argument as I do in the two paragraphs below!

If we keep the filibuster, we lose the right to vote—which won’t matter anyhow, because keeping the filibuster will allow GQP state legislatures to gerrymander democratic elections into a rueful memory and to pass state laws allowing them to toss out the results of elections that don’t favor them.

 

In other words, if we keep the filibuster, we are vastly more likely to see the next, more competent Trump in the White House. If we ditch the filibuster, we’ll have at least a chance to save our democracy. Romney’s position is absurd.
