Scott Walker thinks the new Republican Congress should get rid of the filibuster so that they and President Donald Trump can get their agenda through without procedural roadblocks.
He told Wisconsin radio host Charlie Sykes that he firmly believes that Trump wants to tackle big issues in his presidency and work with the Republican Congress.
And the filibuster, he thinks, would be a serious impediment:
“I think that would really upset the electorate of the people who not only elected Donald Trump and Mike Pence but the people who elected Ron here and elected other members of the House and the Senate. You cannot use, they cannot use inside-the-ballpark Washington procedural reason to justify why things don’t happen. They’ve got to get things done and as I said frequently here in this state and continue to, the best time to do them is early.”
