U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after Joe Biden said he would let Americans know his views on ending the filibuster and packing the court “when the election is over.” 

“Let’s be really clear about what we’re talking about: Joe Biden is refusing to say whether or not he wants to effectively kill two of our three branches of government by abolishing the Senate and packing the Supreme Court. Together the Cowardly Lion and Machiavelli couldn’t have workshopped a better answer, but ‘ask me later’ isn’t going to cut it."
