House Speaker Paul Ryan sided with President Donald Trump and gently nudged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to scrap Senate filibuster rules for legislation.
Fox News host Sean Hannity asked Ryan during an interview Wednesday night if the filibuster was hampering Republicans’ agenda.
“Of course I’d like to see them do majority votes on these things,” Ryan said.
Hannity then asked if Ryan ever talked to McConnell about eliminating the filibuster.
“We’ve talked about it a lot. I don’t think they, they don’t have the votes there for it,” Ryan said. “That’s just the flat, simple answer.”
