Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) slammed Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) over his threat to change the Senate’s rules if the GOP continues to block a federal voting rights bill.
McConnell rightfully noted the effort would fundamentally change the country. Schumer wants to end the Senate filibuster, a longstanding practice that requires a 60-vote supermajority for most issues to pass the Senate.
Schumer wants to change the rule because Democrats have 50 votes, plus the Vice President as a tiebreaker, but lack enough votes to pass his party’s controversial and radical legislation.
This includes the Build Back Better bill that would add trillions of dollars in debt to the nation’s economy that has already experienced the highest inflation in 40 years.
In addition, Democrats want to pass a voting rights act that would federalize many state level voting rights that would favor the left in future elections.
And that’s just the beginning. Remember the recent outcry over the Texas abortion restriction law? Democrats want to pass a law to make “reproductive rights” a federal law too.
There’s an entire radical agenda that is barely being held back, not just by Manchin, but by the filibuster that gives enough cushion to require some bipartisan involvement to pass most bills.
