McCaskill: Calls to Eliminate Filibuster Ignore What ‘We Stopped When We Were in the Minority’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” MSNBC analyst former Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) pushed back on calls to eliminate the filibuster by pointing to what Republicans could have done if Democrats didn’t have the filibuster during the first two years of the Trump administration.

McCaskill said, “I think people forget…the stuff we stopped when we were in the minority. The first two years of this administration, can you imagine what they would have done to a woman’s right to choose, can you imagine what they could have done on a lot of subjects if the minority, which was the Democrats, weren’t in the position to say, we’re not going to let you go there?”
