McConnell: If Democrats Eliminate Filibuster the Senate Will Be ‘100-Car Pileup’ • “Even the most basic aspects of our colleagues' agenda, the most mundane tasks of the Biden Presidency, would actually be harder—harder—not easier for Democrats in a post-nuclear Senate that is 50-50, dead even.” • Says with a post-nuclear Senate Republicans “wouldn't just erase every liberal change that hurt the country.

How about this: nationwide right-to-work for working Americans; defunding (abortion provider) Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities on day one; a whole new era of domestic energy production; sweeping new protections for conscience and the right to life of the unborn; concealed-carry reciprocity in all 50 States and the District of Columbia; and massive hardening of the security on our southern border.” — Full Speech
