Senate Republicans Successfully Block Democrat Federal Elections Takeover Bill

In a huge development, Republicans in the Senate have successfully blocked the Democrat ‘voter reform’ S1 bill, which was essentially an attempted federal takeover of elections.

This is great news.

The bill would have normalized forms of voting that make it easier to cheat and would have pumped untold sums of taxpayer money into political campaigns.

Senate GOP Blocks Debate on For the People Act Voting Reform

Senate Republicans blocked Democrats’ expansive overhaul of U.S. election laws from advancing to the chamber floor, dealing the Democratic majority a defeat on a chief 2020 campaign promise and underscoring their limited power in a chamber evenly split between the two political parties.

The bill failed to advance on a 50-50 party-line vote, short of the 60 needed to overcome a filibuster. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., made a last-minute decision to side with his party, providing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., sought-after Democratic unity after weeks of negotiations with him.

The showdown with Republicans is again putting the spotlight on the chamber’s filibuster rule. The GOP move against voting rights legislation will be used by Democrat leaders to make a case for changing getting rid of or changing filibuster, which allows a minority of just 41 senators to thwart most legislation.

Chuck Schumer lost his mind after the vote. Watch:

Cry more, Chuck.

This bill has nothing to do with voting rights.

It’s about power for Democrats.
