Pelosi: 'I Hope the Democrats Will Use the Filibuster Some Time as Well in That Way'

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) commented Thursday on Sen. Rand Paul's (R-Ky.) historic filibuster the previous day.

'I hope the Democrats will use the filibuster some time as well in that way."

During a brief press conference Thursday morning, Pelosi was asked if she watched any of the filibuster.

“There are certain things that fall into the category of ‘Life Is Too Short,’” she joked. “I myself had, what, four speeches to make last night. I was doing my own thing. I have my own responsibilities.”

“I took note that it was happening,” Pelosi continued, “and let me say that I hope the Democrats will use the filibuster some time as well in that way.”
