Bonjean: Senate filibuster may not survive 2020

 

Ron Bonjean, a Republican strategist and former top leadership aide in the Senate, told the Washington Examiner that the swinging political pendulum will weigh heavily on the minds of Democratic lawmakers in 2021 if they are faced with a vote on ending the legislative filibuster.

Laws rammed through Congress by Democrats, Bonjean noted, would simply be undone once the GOP inevitably gained control again in a few years, creating tremendous uncertainty.

“The Senate would learn a hard lesson over another 10 years or so, that maybe this is not way to do it,” Bonjean said.
