Bozo back to attacking the filibuster

Trump tweets about Senate after failure of health care vote

After the plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act failed in the Senate, President Trump began tweeting about changing the rules in the Senate. 

"If Republicans are going to pass great future legislation in the Senate, they must immediately go to a 51 vote majority, not senseless 60...," he tweeted. 

Mr. Trump then tweeted again, adding, "Even though parts of healthcare could pass at 51, some really good things need 60. So many great future bills & budgets need 60 votes." 

Only if someone invokes the filibuster rule against the measure, of course.

As, in fairness, the Dems are apt to do regarding much of the GOP agenda.

Last time he commented on the question, McConnell was adamant he had no plans to do away with the legislative filibuster.
