Voting bill collapses, Democrats can’t change filibuster
The voting law, which the Democrats and civil rights leaders say, is that two senators join their party in changing the rules of the Senate to overcome the Republican filibuster after a live emotional debate. Collapsed when I refused. The result on Wednesday night was a devastating defeat for President Joe Biden and his party, and came in a turmoil near his first year in office. Despite a day of sharp debate and speeches that often carry the reverberations of the early days when Senate filibuster was deployed by opponents of civil rights law, the Democratic Party was in the Senate at Kyrsten Sinema in Arizona and Joe Manchin in West Virginia. This one bill, which could not be persuaded to change the procedure, allows a simple majority to proceed with it.
