Anything Obama said is a lie. He has only one single objective, to force his skewed communist socialist form of government on the American people where democrats tell us how to live our lives the way they want. The filibuster was put is place to ensure the minority party in the Senate has an ability to force compromise on legislation. Just remember what Obama said when he was in office, always complaining the United States Constitutes was always getting in the way of what he wanted to. Eliminating the filibuster would allow them to just force legislation through legalities be dammed. The democratic party is hell bound to destroy America, what is wrong with them !
