(TheRedAlertNews.com) – President Joe Biden has raised the white flag of surrender when it comes to his desire to pass federal voting rights legislation.
With an evenly divided United States Senate and several of his fellow Democrats refusing to cast aside the Senate’s filibuster rule requiring 60 votes to pass the legislation, Biden has finally acknowledged reality. He will not get his way.
As The Hill reports:
“President Biden in a moment of brutal honesty on Thursday admitted that his push to enact changes to voting laws and the Senate’s filibuster rule may be doomed.
“‘The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done,’ Biden said after leaving a more-than-hour-long meeting with Senate Democrats to persuade them to change the Senate’s rules.
“‘I hope we can get this done but I’m not sure,” he said.
“Biden pledged to keep fighting for election reform and voting rights legislation even if Republicans again block an effort to move legislation this weekend.” [emphasis added]
But, here’s the reality. The legislation is dead in the water. With Republicans poised to take back the Senate and the United States House of Representatives in the fast-approaching mid-term elections, the Democrats design on overturning freshly-enacted state voting rights laws in Georgia, Florida, Texas, and several other states, are doomed.
