California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris said she would work to scrap the Senate filibuster as president if Republicans refuse to work with Democrats to pass the Green New Deal.
The Democratic 2020 presidential candidate made the comments during a CNN town hall Wednesday evening, stating that in the event she won the presidency and Senate Republicans refused to work with Democrats to pass the legislation, eliminating the 60 vote requirement for ending Senate debate would be an avenue to pursue.
If [Republicans] fail to act, as president of the United States, I am prepared to get rid of the filibuster to pass a Green New Deal, she said to audience applause.

Which is why the Republicans should beat them to the punch. The age of polite disagreements is gone.
So, she should not be running for president.... If this is the case, she should be running for Sinate Majority Leader.
Why doesn’t she introduce a measure to do that tomorrow? Don’t flap your gums Kamala, just do it.
How the hell can she do this? The president cannot override Senate rules by decree.
She also said something that she would issue executive orders on gun control, and bypass Congress. Does she have a dictatorial tendency????
So she’s despotic dictator. Nothing new from the Fascist Left.
I was watching a bit of Warren and Beto. To say they are kooks- understatement. Warren is very much the Jimmy Swaggart of leftists. She actually said we only have 11 years left. Wants to spend $11 trillion on alternate energy scams, including technologies she admits don’t exist. She calls private jobs an “afterthought” but the government spending will create “real jobs”.
Beto wants to keep all the oil and gas “in the ground”. Literally.
Yep, while on her back.
These fascist morons have to know they are just digging their hole deeper....rampant stupidity.
God help us if any of these looney Leftists becomes POTUS.
Wanna get away? Just lean over heels up and hear the ocean roar. Come gettem commies.
Does a bear shit in the woods?
Typical RAT control freak.
Harris is the most dangerous of the bunch, IMO. She’s a she-devil Obama clone.
Yah, a president has no such authority. As a senator and
a state attorney general she knows this. This idiot
will never sit at the oval office big chair.
NOVA is on right now. Hurricanes caused by Global Warming.
The green new deal only costs $64,000 per year per household ..... No problem after zer0care .... Right ?
Shut up, Kamelbreath HairAss you ignorant Slut.
Your green Old Con is for Kids, and their Nanny!
