The Texas Democrats who fled the state have proven they are ok with the filibuster.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
Democrats, who have been toying all year with the idea of nuking the legislative filibuster in order to jam through a left-wing wishlist on party lines, have finally found a form of obstruction they support.
The Texas Democrats who fled the state for D.C. in order to derail their own legislative session received a hero’s welcome from President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, who praised their courage and compared them to the abolitionist hero Frederick Douglass. “As American as apple pie,” the vice president declared.
The Texans may have failed in their mission—more on that later—but they succeeded spectacularly in exposing the hypocrisy of their party on minority power.
The group was looking to stop the Republican majority in the Texas legislature from passing a package of voting reforms by taking the extreme step as a minority party of leaving the state altogether. Without enough present members, the Texas House of Representatives shuts down. Their departure temporarily robbed Republicans of the ability to move legislation.
Democrats now are trying to convince senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema.
