Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is calling on Senate Republicans to get rid of the filibuster to help a Trump administration get its priorities passed through the upper chamber.
"He wants to be able to say, 'We won,' and that best way to do that is to allow [Speaker] Paul [Ryan (R-Wis.)] to help lead the way in the House," Walker told radio host Charlie Sykes. "I think the Senate, people like [Sen.] Ron Johnson [R-Wis.] for sure — Ron wants to help Paul in that regard. My biggest concern is that they not allow, some of these arcane rules that have nothing to with the Constitution."
Excuse me? Since when is it the task of Congress to enable the President to pass his agenda? It most certainly wasn't the case when Barack Obama was President.
I don't recall America electing 535 rubber stamps. Have We the People no say in matters of state?
