House Democrats Urge Biden to Override Senate Rule

Twenty-three House Democrat representatives urged Biden to overrule the Senate parliamentarian's ruling that budget reconciliation could not be used to raise the minimum wage.

On the show today, Todd discussed how the House Democrat representatives wrote Biden a letter on Monday attempting to convince him to override the Senate's rule. According to this article, the letter read "Eighty-one million people cast their ballots to elect you on a platform that called for a $15 minimum wage. We urge you to keep that promise ... and maintain the $15 minimum wage provision in the American Rescue Plan."  

When the Senate rules - the very rules Democrats put into place I should add - interfere with their ability to force their agenda on the American people, what do they do? They try to change the rules. Or ignore the rules. Anything but actually follow the rules.

They clamored for years that Trump was a dangerous president who wouldn't be constrained by the Constitution, the rule of law, and the norms of governance. But, as usual, Democrats are the ones doing the very thing they accuse others of doing.
