Sen. Ben Sasse: Political Arson and America's Descent Into Tribalism

"It is our job to stop giving ear to political arsonists who would burn down our institutions and intensify our divisions," said Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) in a Senate floor speech on Jan. 13, 2022. 

He spoke during a debate on eliminating the filibuster, a long-standing Senate rule designed to prevent highly controversial bills from being passed on slim majorities. "Getting rid of the filibuster means you don't have to try to talk to people on the other side of the aisle," he said.

Sen. Sasse criticized the "disastrous leadership" of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), and he accused President Joe Biden of "violating the Ninth Commandment" by suggesting that those who disagree with his legislative aim of "federalizing elections" are bigots and racists. The president, Sasse said, has "surrender[ed] to the angriest voices on social media."
