I know I am doing Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) no favors by praising her in a conservative platform, yet it needs to be said that Sen. Sinema is spot on to advocate for a restoration the filibuster rule of the United States Senate in a way that will bring more decorum and cooperation between the parties. The filibuster needs to be expanded, not constricted.

Democrats are beside themselves that Sen. Sinema spoke at an event sponsored by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY). The Wall Street Journal reported on September 26, 2022, “Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D., Ariz.) called for reinstating Senate procedures requiring a supermajority to confirm judges and executive-branch nominees, in remarks underscoring her disagreements with fellow Democrats over the filibuster.” Liberals were apoplectic that she argued for a restoration of the Senate’s filibuster rule as applied to nominations.

The great irony is that today, the Senate is violating the rules every time they end debate on a nomination with a simple majority vote.
