Senate Democrats failed to advance their Election Steal legislation in a 49-51 vote.
The vote passed on party lines. Chuck Schumer switched his vote for procedural reasons.
The bill will make elections open to all and allow Democrats to manufacture and stuff ballot boxes.
It is a dream legislation for Democrats who know they must cheat to win elections.
It is also a disgrace and pure communism.
These people are pure evil.
Democrats now hope to use a “talking filibuster” gimmick to pass the legislation.
God help us.
NBC News reported:
Senate Republicans voted in unity Wednesday to block the advancement of a package of sweeping election legislation pushed by Democrats in a tense showdown over national voting rights.
The vote on the Freedom to Vote Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act was 49-51. The vote broke evenly along party lines, but Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer switched his vote to “no” in the end for procedural reasons. It fell short of the 60 votes required to defeat a filibuster under Senate rules.
Senate Democratic leaders now turn to a planned effort to change the rules, impose a “talking filibuster” and ultimately pass the legislation without Republicans once debate ends.
The vote is set to be followed by an attempt by Senate Democratic leaders to change that 60-vote rule, impose a “talking filibuster” and ultimately pass the legislation without Republicans once debate ends.
That effort, which is expected later Wednesday night and would require only 50 votes, is also expected to fail.
