The House of Representatives has now passed a voting rights package, a move that has long been sought after by the Democrats, setting up a showdown in the Senate.

As The Hill reports:

The House passed voting rights legislation on Thursday in a way that is intended to set up a battle in the Senate over that issue as well as the filibuster.

The measure passed in a 220-203 party-line vote.

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) has vowed to put the measure to a vote in the coming days before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday in a bid to highlight state laws approved by GOP-dominated state governments that Democrats say will make it more difficult for their supporters — including minority voters — to vote.

The manner in which the legislation was approved allows Schumer to bring it straight to the floor. But Democrats would need 60 votes — including 10 GOP votes — to get it to President Biden‘s desk given the filibuster.

Senator Krysten Sinema has since come out and officially declared that she will not be supporting the Democrats’ attempt to junk the filibuster.

Love your way with words’! You hit the nail right on the head! They’re doing all this cuz they’re sore loser’s who’ve got no platform’s to stand on & can only win by cheating. By changing standing Vote Law’s it will open the door’s to legally do so. What if the tables were turned & we the ‘Deplorable Party’ tried same?…imagine that!
