Nadler on ‘Wimps,’ Filibusters

Also from last night’s Chelsea Reform Democratic Club meeting, here’s Representative Jerry Nadler calling Democrats in the Senate “wimps” for backing down from legislation that Republicans threaten to filibuster. [About the 1:45 mark]

"Lyndon Johnson passed legislation,” Nadler said. “He didn’t have 60 votes.”


“He made them filibuster,” said Nadler, who went on to add that if Senate Democrats actually made Republicans go through with a filibuster, the minority party would be painted as obstructionist. Nadler on ‘Wimps,’ Filibusters
