Gosh, Democratic Senator Martin Heinrich’s statement on abolishing the filibuster is super powerful. Good to know he’s being consistent in his views on the filibuster and that he’s in no way a gigantic and embarrassing hypocrite.
I cannot support the continued abuse of the filibuster in the United States Senate. pic.twitter.com/Q3QOAEr5A2

Except yeah … if anyone knows about abusing the filibuster, it’s this guy.
Martin Heinrich voted to filibuster over 340 times the past 6 years…🤔 https://t.co/LHbrdUl68K

340 times over six years.
If we do the math (and really, math?!!?), that’s roughly 56 times EACH YEAR Heinrich voted to filibuster.
That’s a lot.
Filibuster bad because… 'Equality'. Everyone, remind them that the filibuster is in place to protect the MINORITY party. That is, its purpose IS equality

Perhaps he had on his other face then.

Perhaps he did.
I will however continue to be a major hypocrite

As usual another intellectually dishonest Dem.

It’s almost like they only care about getting more power for themselves when they are in control, then complain about it when the other party use it against them… but… maybe I’m wrong.

Sadly, they’re right.
It’s about power, control, and getting re-elected. That’s it.
