Biden calls for abolishing agenda rules to legislate abortion rights

(CNN)President Joe Biden said Thursday that he would support the exception offilibuster. -In order to systematize the right to abortion and the right to privacy through legislation passed by Congress, a Senate voting threshold was needed to pass most laws.

But despite Biden's new support for the filibuster carve-out, his best bet is next year, with the Democratic Party winning at least two seats and holding the House of Representatives. Only if. work.

Last week, following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the Roe v. Wade case, Biden was asked in Madrid what administrative steps he would take to strengthen his right to abortion. "The most important thing. Change-We believe that the Roe v. Wade case must be codified by law."

"And the way to do it is It's about making sure Congress votes to do it, and if the agenda gets in the way, it's like voting rights-it should provide an exception for us. This is the Supreme Court's We demand an exception to the agenda for this action to deal with the ruling, "he added.

The President has since revealed that he is willing to change the filibuster rules regarding "the right to abortion as well as the right to privacy."

So far, despite calls from progressives to abolish filibuster in order to pass filibuster, we have called for a change in the Senate's rules. It's a tough call from the disliked president. Biden told CNN Anderson Cooperat the City Hall last year that he was ready to change the filibuster to pass a "and maybe more" voting bill. His comment on Thursday is the first time he has expressed his full willingness to eliminate filibuster, especially for the right to abortion.

The Senate does not have the 60 votes needed to codify the Roe v. Wade case under current rules.

Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona have expressed opposition to the change in filibuster rules. And while Manchin is legally open to codifying the Roe v. Wade case, both senators objected to incorporating filibuster, and their office repeated Thursday.

Cinema office points outWashington Post editorial, and Senator last year said filibuster protected the right to abortion and blocked a 20-week ban on abortion. Claimed to have been used for. ..

Therefore, without the support of Manchin and Cinema, Democrats need to be wiped out in the November elections to approve the law on the right to abortion.

A Democratic senator in Madrid as part of a parliamentary delegation attending the NATO summit was pessimistic, pointing out the oversized role of Manchin and Cinema in changing the rules.

Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, the second-highest Democrat in the Senate, told reporters in Madrid that in the 50-50 Senate, "the idea of ​​changing the rules is actually one. I'm at the mercy of two things. " A senator who can make that decision for us. "

He added," This is not a political environment that demands "massive institutional change."

"I voted to end (filibuster)," said Senator Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat in New Hampshire. "I didn't pass, so I may or may not pick it up again."

Flagging polls and despite the poor prospects of maintaining a majority of Democrats in the Senate The White House is looking to win a Senate seat and increase its narrow majority.

Keeping the current seats and adding at least two new Democratic Senators could theoretically pave the way for a vote on Senate rule changes. increase.

Biden's call is in line with the White House's efforts to increase urgency prior to the midterm elections-and enough for the Democrats of the country to deal with and fight the Biden administration. The Supreme Court's decision, as it raises more and more concerns about not doing so.

Supreme Court actions are "destabilizing"

Biden, after a series of summit talks with world leaders in Europe There was widespread debate over the characteristics of America's retreat. But he admitted that the Supreme Court's rollback on the right to abortion and the right to privacy has been "stabilized."

"We were world leaders in terms of personal and privacy rights, and I think it is a mistake for the Supreme Court to do that." He said.

"Attacking a core American institution like the Supreme Court from the world stage is below the president's dignity," McConnell, a key Republican member of the Senate, said in a statement. rice field. "Beyond that, an attack on President Biden's court is worthless and dangerous. He is angry that the court said people would speak about abortion policy through their elected representatives. It does not destabilize democracy-it affirms it. In contrast, it is presidential behavior that undermines equal justice and the rule of law. "

'I'm the only president they got'

At a press conference on Thursday, Biden also has the ability to effectively convey the Democratic message about abortion. Defended. Despite his complex history on this issue, he told progressive members of his party that they had little choice in the matter.

"The only president they got was me," he said.

Some Democrats were critical of Biden for not speaking out loud about protecting the right to abortion. Some have complained that the Supreme Court has overturned the Roe v. Wade case and that he is not willing to go enough to protect access to abortion.

But Biden said he was in the White House.

"I am the President of the United States," he said. "It makes me the best messenger."

He called the abortion decision "a serious and serious problem that the court imposed on the United States" and other decisions like the right to marriage. Connected to a potential problem.

"I feel very strongly that I intend to do everything on my own. This can be done legally with respect to presidential orders," he said.

At a press conference on Thursday, the president said he would meet with the governor on Friday to discuss the abortion issue and make an "announcement at that time."

Biden will effectively meet attendees, including the Democratic government. Ned Lamont, Connecticut, Kathy Hockle, New Mexico, Michelle Lujan Grisham, New Mexico, J.B.
