President Joe Biden on Thursday said the United States should "fundamentally alter" the Senate filibuster on "certain issues" as his administration faces growing pressure from activists and Democrats to act on voting rights legislation. The filibuster requires 60 of 100 U.S. senators https://www.reuters.com/world/us/what-is-us-senate-filibuster-why-is-everyone-talking-about-it-2021-10-06 to agree on most legislation, a hurdle that has left the Democratic party powerless on key social issues given their narrow majority.
