And wonderful news - the voting bill

| No Comments

Looks like some Democrats are listening to their constituants.  London Daily Mail:

'I don't know that we can get this done but as long as I have breath in me I'm going to fight': Agitated Biden accepts defeat on voting rights after Senator Sinema aligned with Manchin and blew up his bid to kill the filibuster

    • President Joe Biden conceded he doesn't know how voting rights legislation will be passed but vowed 'as long as I have breath in me' he will fight
    • Unclear how federal legislation can be passed or the path forward
    • Democratic Senator Kyrsten Simena made it clear she will not support Biden's call to kill the filibuster in order to pass the legislation
    • She gave a 19 minute speech on the Senate floor before Biden came to meet with Democrats in the Capitol and essentially killed efforts to pass the egislation
    • Senator Joe Manchin, who also supports keeping the filibuster, described Sinema's speech as 'excellent'
    • 'Very good. Excellent speech,' he said
    • Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Sinema 'saved' the Senate
    • 'She saved the Senate as an institution,' he said
    • The House passed a voting rights bill on Thursday and sent it to the Senate
    • Move is a procedural gambit to allow Chuck Schumer to bypass a Republican fillibuster in order to start debate on the legislation

Sore losers...  Loving it.  Agitated?  Reminds me of this old advertisement - even looks the part:
