Democratic political strategist Doug Schoen told the Daily Caller’s Brianna Lyman that Democrats’ push to abolish the filibuster would hurt democracy and that pushing for Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rican statehood is an effort to “rig the game.”

“I am a strong believer in the filibuster. I think it is essential, particularly in a time when the Democrats have 50 plus the vice president, that we not try to change the rules. I think it would hurt American democracy substantially,” Schoen said, arguing that doing anything more than budget reconciliation could be dangerous.
