GOP Rep. Sean Duffy: 'Get Rid of the Filibuster Rule'

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"/Twitter 

By    |   Monday, 17 Jul 2017 11:59 AM

Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., on Monday called for an end to "stupid Senate rules," such as the filibuster, which he said were impeding the Republican agenda.

"Get rid of the filibuster rule," he said on "Fox & Friends," adding, "You only need 51 votes. Get rid of it."

When asked if he would still support removing the rule if Democrats take a majority, Duffy said, "They're going to get rid of it when they have the majority. We might as well do it now and accomplish this agenda."

He also said that Americans want "us to accomplish this agenda," adding, "we're not getting it done because of stupid Senate rules."

Duffy echoes President Donald Trump, who called for an end to the filibuster in May, in order to help Republicans pass tax and healthcare legislation.
