Sen. Kyrsten Sinema said Thursday that she will not vote to weaken the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster threshold, bucking her party leaders yet again and dealing a major blow to Democrats’ election reform effort.

The comments, which match Sinema’s long-held stance on the filibuster, are effectively the final nail in the coffin of Democrats’ longshot effort to pass two elections bills over unified Senate GOP opposition.

The article goes on to state the following:

“There’s no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There’s no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal policy,” Sinema, D-Ariz., said. “This week’s harried discussions about Senate rules are but a poor substitute for what I believe could have and should have been a thoughtful public debate at any time over the past year.”


“But what is the legislative filibuster, other than a tool that requires new federal policy to be broadly supported by senators,” she continued. “Representing the broader cross-section of Americans… Demands to eliminate this threshold from whichever party holds the fleeting majority amount to a group of people separated on two sides of a canyon, shouting that solution to their colleagues.”

Sinema’s comment follow the House’s move to swiftly pass legislation that combines both The John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the Freedom to Vote Act.

The party would need all 50 Senate Democrats on board in order to make changes to the filibuster, but it is now unlikely due to Sinema and Sen. Manchin’s previous rejection to revise the rule.

  1. Good for Her and Manchin. Joe Kamala Chuck and Nancy when will you learn “we the people” do not want this Bill. End of Story.

  2. I can’t help but feel this is all orchestrated. Dems put up a trial balloon, sense there’s not enough support for it and then find a Democrat to vote against it. The far left are placated because it was proposed. The Democrats are saved from what most view as radical legislation and life goes on. Dems have to realize that if this passed it might someday be used against them. There is precedent for all of this. I think I’m getting cynical in my old age.

  3. CALL your two state senators and verify they are not supporting the voting rights act or the filibuster. Do not take for granted that either of these won’t pass on the media. Go to senator.gov to call and request a reply on how they plan to vote. Each state has 2 senators and call each one. Provide email or phone to get a response. Need to keeps ID’s to have a voter’s registration and to vote and no third party ballot harvesting which is included in this bill!

  4. What good is a filibuster (60 votes) if 50 votes can change the filibuster rule?! Democrats better be careful what they wish for. It may come back to bite them on the butt.

  5. I’m torn between relief and worry. I like what she said. She sounded nervous so hopefully she is sincere. She knows what the libs are going to put her through along with what they already have to her and Manchin. However sometimes push back is so strong that it turns the person against the pushing and pushers. This is what is happening now in America. People have reached the breaking point for being blamed for the state of the entire world. We’ve have had enough of trying to be pushed into things we don’t believe, condone or doesn’t make any sense to a normal person. The mandates are a prime example of this, so is open borders, , not supporting America which any other countries in the world would support their country first. Now I’m proud I kept calm today which a lot of the stories blow that out of the water. I will hop off now before I read something that blows me up. I have found for my sanity and everyone else around me that I am going to have to stay off for awhile. So if you see no response from me you know why. Some of you know I usually have something to say lol. So until next time, God Bless the USA. May our flag & freedom be our guide along with God who foretold what’s unfolding. It’s still a downfall of mine to worry about our future, our kids & grandkids futures too. But with God’s help we can keep the faith. I know on here I’ve lost my temper and said things that I’ve had to ask Gods forgiveness for. At times I’ve had more righteous anger than love for others. So God Bless you Christians & Patriots who hold what God gave us sacred.

  6. Well.goid fir her at least she is brave and dedicated enough to soesk her mind and stick with it i do not agree on those 2 bills she supports but I’ll tsje her stsnce on tbe filibuster ! You Go Sinena !!
