Wasserman Schultz: GOP Filibuster Is ‘Disgusting and Unconscionable’

by Andrew Johnson

Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) said that the 14 Republican senators who have vowed to filibuster upcoming gun-control legislation “don’t care about protecting people in America from people who would do them harm with a gun.”

“It’s disgusting and unconscionable,” Wasserman Schultz said on Piers Morgan Live last night, also calling it “immoral” and “cowardly.” 

Wasserman Schultz told Piers Morgan that “we have background checks in our grasp,” adding that such a big step seemed unthinkable to her after Gabby Giffords was shot in 2011. Senators Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R., Pa.) are scheduled to announce a deal on background checks later this morning.
