Two Democrats, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, have sided with Republicans and successfully blocked the Democrats’ latest power grab.

In a 48 to 52 final voting tally, the Senate opposed the Democrats’ attempt to alter the Senate filibuster.

Democrats have been trying to pass a bill called “Freedom to Vote Act,” but fortunately a Republican-led filibuster has blocked the move.

The bills are intended to significantly expand voting access so individuals can vote by mail or vote early. It would also expand voter registration by allowing for “automatic registration” and “same-day registration.”

Republicans have rightly argued the legislation will create a significant risk of voter fraud. As a result, Democrats have been unable to get the 60 votes needed to pass the legislation.

In an act of desperation, Vice President Kamala Harris warned that Democrats are “not going to give up.” Democrats, who hold a slight majority in the Senate of 51 to 50, have threatened to drastically change Senate rules if they don’t get their way.

This tactic was meant to force Republicans to cooperate in order to pass their left-wing legislative agenda.

“A few hours ago this chamber, with the eyes of the nation upon it and with the evidence of vote suppression laid bare before it… took a vote to move to final passage on the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,” Schumer said on the Senate floor Thursday.

“It received 50 votes, and with the vice president we would have had a majority.”

The filibuster change Schumer proposed would only apply to the elections bills the Senate was considering Wednesday. But it was nonetheless attempted using the partisan nuclear option Sinema and Manchin made clear repeatedly said they opposed – even though they support the underlying bills.

“These bills help treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully address the disease itself. And while I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division affecting our country,” Sinema said last week.

“Allowing one party to exert complete control in the Senate with only a simple majority will only pour fuel on the fire of political whiplash and dysfunction that is tearing this nation apart,” Manchin, D-W.Va., said Wednesday. “Contrary to what some have said, protecting the role of the minority – Democrat or Republican – has protected us from the volatile political swings that we have endured over the last 233 years.”

A vote to defang of the filibuster – especially for election legislation – is years in the making after intense pressure from Democrat activists, lawmakers and more recently, President Biden.
