Democratic Senator Delivers Crushing Blow to ‘Partisan’ Election Bill That Would Oveturn State Reforms

Senator Joe Manchin is all but assuring that the Democratic Party’s attempt to continue the debacle of the 2020 presidential election in perpetuity will be brought to a halt, at least the federal level. The Democratic Senator is delivering a backbreaking blow to the Democrats’ hope of passing H.R. 1, which would effectively outlaw strict voter IDs and mandate that elections be carried out via absentee ballots for weeks, if not months before elections.

“I believe that partisan voting legislation will destroy the already weakening binds of our democracy, and for that reason, I will vote against the For the People Act. Furthermore, I will not vote to weaken or eliminate the filibuster,” Sen. Joe Manchin wrote in a hometown newspaper, the Charleston Gazette-Mail. “The fundamental right to vote has itself become overtly politicized,” he added.

“Manchin said lawmakers should instead focus their energies on revitalizing the landmark Voting Rights Act, which was weakened by a Supreme Court decision in 2013,” the AP reported. “Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska has joined him in calling for that approach.”

“Manchin’s opposition to the broader elections bill is just the latest challenge facing Democrats as they enter the summer work period under rising pressure to deliver on their promises to voters,” the report continued. “Manchin reiterated he would not vote to ‘weaken or eliminate the filibuster,’ a route that many Democrats see as the only realistic path forward.”

“Manchin and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., have frustrated their party by their defense of the filibuster,” the AP continued. But they aren’t alone, with as many as 10 Democratic senators also reluctant to change the rules.”

The Democratic Party is now going to have to turn its attention to actually getting things done for the American people, instead of attempting to rig elections from the federal level. It may even require that the radical party compromise with the Republicans, something the party seemingly refuses to do.
