(CNSNews.com) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told reporters on Wednesday that the American people are not interested in the issues of same-sex marriage and abortion.

A reporter asked Reid: “Do you have any plans to change the filibuster rule?”

“Yes I do,” said Reid.  “I’ve said so publicly and I continue to feel that way.”

Reporter: “Can you talk about specifically what you want to do?”

“I’m not going to talk specifically but you asked a question, I’m answering it,” said Reid. “Yes, I do. I think that the rules have been abused, and that we’re going to work to change them. We’re not going to do away with the filibuster. But we’re going to make the Senate a more meaningful place. We’re going to make it so we can get things done.”

“And so that people who want to have votes on what you mentioned--but same-sex marriage, abortion--I mean, the American people aren’t interested in that,” said Reid.
