U.S. Senator Todd Young says while he is open to reforming the filibuster, he says it should still take 60 votes to procedurally bring a vote to the floor in the Senate.
Democrats have complained that Republicans are using the filibuster to block the Biden agenda and some have called for getting rid of it altogether.
Speaking this morning at the Indiana Fiscal Policy Institute, Young said he would be open to changing the filibuster rules, such as having the individual who called the filibuster actually speak on the floor.
However, he says in our polarized political atmosphere, 60 votes is needed to guard against bad or polarized ideas.
