The Biden administration has continued to push-back against Senate Democrats who are trying to eliminate the filibuster. In an interview over the weekend, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said Biden thinks the filibuster should remain and is an important part of Senate rules.

This comes as Democrats in the upper chamber have been considering a way to kill the filibuster. They hope it will prevent Republicans from stalling long enough to stop a vote on measures like H.R.1. Nonetheless, Klain said Biden hopes the Senate will change the bill instead of changing long-standing procedure.

However, it’s unclear whether Biden will do anything to stop Senate Democrats from removing the filibuster as the only other way the left could pass H.R.1, which apparently is his priority is by getting 10 Republican senators to join them.
