Amazing.

Biden opposes abandoning the filibuster to pass federal voting rights legislation b/c:
(1) he wants to bring the country together;
(2) he thinks everyone will come out and vote no matter how suppressive state voting laws are

This answer from Biden on the filibuster just doesn’t make sense.

Republicans aren’t going to wake up and “know better” than suppressing the vote. The filibuster encourages them to obstruct and our reluctance to end it emboldens them to do worse.

In sum, he values an old senate debating rule more highly than voting rights protections.
