Biden says he supports reforming, not eliminating filibuster: ABC News interview

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden on Tuesday told ABC News that he supported changing the Senate’s filibuster rule back to requiring senators talk on the floor to hold up a bill, the first time he has endorsed reforming the procedure.

In an interview with ABC News, Biden said he did not think the filibuster needed to be eliminated completely, but supported reverting to the old practice when senators “had to stand up and command the floor, you had to keep talking.”
