WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) spoke on the Senate floor about the push by President Biden and Senate Democrats to eliminate the filibuster.

“The Senate rule change the Majority Leader is pushing is really a proxy vote for ending the legislative filibuster altogether and turning the Senate into the House. Full stop. So I ask my Democratic colleagues to consider this. When President Trump called for ending the filibuster, the large majority of Republican Senators stood up to preserve bipartisanship and protect our institution,” said Senator Tillis. “Now the roles are reversed. President Biden and the Majority Leader are demanding that you give them your vote to weaken the filibuster so it can be ultimately ended. Will you now stand up for the principles you said you believe in?”
