As mentioned yesterday, House Democrats have used ECA reform first and foremost as a political stunt.

VP Harris — Another Filibuster Flip-Flopper

This past weekend, Vice President Kamala Harris doubled down on her position as one of the biggest flip-floppers in the Democrat Party on keeping the filibuster when she told attendees at the Democrat National Committee's summer meeting that abolishing the filibuster would be a priority if Democrats retain control of the Senate after November's midterm elections.
