White House

Perverse Quote of the Day

Axios notes that “a White House official told reporters Biden ‘supports — as an institutionalist — changing the Senate rules to ensure it can work again . . . and this basic right is defended.’”

Really? Making the Senate more like the House and blowing up its long-standing traditions on partisan votes is what Senate institutionalists do? There’s no good justification for Biden to turn his back on his long-standing, impassioned support for the filibuster, but Biden aides don’t need to insult our intelligence, even on background.
