It was not that long ago when Senate Democrats opposed eliminating the filibuster, as Byron York recalls

Massachusetts’ Sen. Elizabeth Warren is among Democrats pushing for eliminating the filibuster rule in the U.S. Senate, which would lower the threshold of votes needed to pass legislation to a simple majority (51 votes). As Washington Examiner columnist Byron York points out, the filibuster was supported by a majority of Senate Democrats, including vice president (then-senator) Kamala Harris, just a short political while ago.

Note the commentary in CNN’s headline about a legislative mechanism of the U.S. Senate.

Keep in mind, there is a 50-50 party-line split in the U.S. Senate with vice president Harris positioned to cast the deciding vote, which would assuredly favor Democrats.
