Elizabeth Warren Says U.S. Senate Must Abolish The Filibuster To Honor Martin Luther King Jr.’s Legacy

January 17, 2022

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Cambridge) is no fan of the filibuster in the U.S. Senate.

Warren would prefer a simple majority to pass all bills in the U.S. Senate, rather than requiring 60 votes to pass major pieces of legislation.

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, January 16, Warren said getting rid of the filibuster is necessary to honor the late civil rights leader.

“Honoring Dr. King’s legacy means we have to keep up the fight to advance social, racial, and economic justice — and that includes passing legislation to protect the sacred right to vote,” Warren wrote. “It’s time to end the filibuster and get it done.”
