President Biden Set To Meet With Dems Ahead Of Debate Over Voting Bill
According to new reports, President Joe Biden is all set to meet up with Senate Democrats on Thursday as his political party continues its push for voting legislation.
A special caucus meeting is scheduled to take place tomorrow, according to reports from Politico, where party leaders will then attempt to pass two bills that have stalled, both of which would provide a massive overhaul to federal elections.
Which no doubt would benefit Democrats and help them stay in power for a long, long time.
Biden made a fiery speech in Atlanta on Tuesday, calling for the passage of the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to safeguard democracy from “autocracy” and “Jim Crow 2.0.”
“The next few days, when these bills come to a vote, will mark a turning point in this nation. Will we choose democracy over autocracy, light over shadow, justice over injustice? I know where I stand. I will not yield. I will not flinch,” the president said.
But the bills lack Republican support, and party leaders appear not to have the votes to change filibuster rules as a workaround to approve the voting bills. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has said the chamber will hold a vote on filibuster changes before Jan. 17, which is Martin Luther King Day.
Democrats continue to make the claim that these pieces of legislation are critical to advance democracy, but the GOP sees them as a federal takeover of elections that would ultimately undermine ballot security.
