Schumer On Packing Supreme Court, DC And Puerto Rico Statehood: " I'm Not Busting My Chops To Become Majority Leader To Do Nothing"

|

During an interview Wednesday with MSNBC's Joy Reid, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said "everything is on the table" if Democrats win a majority of the Senate, including eliminating the filibuster, increasing the number of Supreme Court justices and adding four new senators and two new states with Puerto Rico and Washington, DC.


SEN CHUCK SCHUMER: I would -- believe me, on D.C. and Puerto Rico -- particularly if Puerto Rico votes for it, D.C. already has voted for it and wants it -- would love to make them states.

And as for the filibuster, I'm not busting my chops to become majority leader to do very little or nothing. We are going to get a whole lot done, and as I've said, everything, everything is on the table.
