For Senate Democrats, a part of the reply to that query is S 1, the For The Folks Act. That invoice has 49 co-sponsors within the senate. 49 out of fifty democratic senators have co-sponsored it. The one Democrat who hasn’t is senator Joe Manchin. He’s the one Democratic senator who hasn’t signed on his identify in assist.
He doesn’t need to signal on to assist this sweeping voting-rights invoice that can afford federal safety to voting rights. He doesn’t need to signal on to it until a bunch of Republicans vote for it, too. This type of invoice that protects individuals’s proper to vote. Makes positive that each vote counts. That’s solely a worth to him, until a major variety of Republicans in the US Senate comply with vote for it, as nicely. Simply to essentially spell that out. What Senator Manchin desires is to search out not less than ten Republican senators to vote for a invoice that protects voting rights. Ten senators, from the get together that’s making an attempt to institutionalize the correct to overturn free-and-fair elections if a Republican doesn’t win them.
The Republican Get together is making an attempt to set voting rights again in the US not less than 60 years. There isn’t any means that Republicans will vote for a severe invoice that expands voting rights. Manchin has to know this, which makes his political endgame extra about his personal political survival than bipartisanship.
The Senator from West Virginia’s place is that until ten Senate Republicans assist it, there could be nothing accomplished in regards to the GOP’s marketing campaign to rig future elections.
Rachel Maddow is exposing Joe Manchin‘s bipartisan charade to disclose a senator who’s afraid to take a tricky vote and clarify it to the individuals of his state.
