To be clear, the “/s” means the statement is sarcasm.

Obviously Biden can’t prevent Republicans from stopping legislation. Recently their main tactic is to filibuster any Senate bill. The rules of the Senate are weird, they decide during each session, and none of their rules are specifically described in the Constitution. So it’s odd that some bills can pass with simple majority, others require 60 or more votes in favor, and some only require a minority to filibuster. I don’t really get it.
