On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) discussed the filibuster and verbally expressed that “it’s not a hard call for me, if I have to cull between meeting promises and doing what Americans want versus upholding arcane Senate rules that can facilely be transmuted.”
Kaine verbally expressed, “[M]y constituents, Chris, in Virginia, they don’t ask me about Senate rules. They verbally express, can you raise the minimum wage for gosh sake? … Can you do something about gun safety? Can you do immigration reform? … And my goal is, I promised folks that if we got a Democratic majority, we would get results for them and I’m not going to let form be ascended over substance. So, we’re going to do the substance. We’re going to endeavor to get Republicans on board. We’re going to heedfully aurally perceive them and incorporate their conceptions. They’re going to make their own strategic call. But I’m not personally going to ascend arcane Senate rules over meeting promises.”
He integrated, “I cerebrate you’re right, we’re probably going to get to a D-Day down the road, could be in a month or it could be in four months, where we’re going to put something like voting rights reform or minimum wage increase on the table and we’re going to endeavor to get Republicans to avail us and we’re going to visually perceive whether they’ll meet their constituents’ needs or not. And if at that point, they don’t, it’s not a hard call for me, if I have to optate between meeting promises and doing what Americans want versus upholding arcane Senate rules that can facilely be transmuted. But we’re not there yet. Tonight, we’re about getting COVID assuagement and we’re going to get it.”
