Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday night blocked an attempt by Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to set up simple majority votes on a sweeping elections bill and legislation to bolster the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which would have allowed Democrats to pass the two bills without GOP support.

Schumer, on the Senate, floor detailed his offer: allowing the two bills to need only a simple majority to pass instead of needing the normal 60 votes to advance in the Senate. In exchange, Democrats would sign off on holding simple majority votes on nearly 20 bills that Republicans placed on the Senate calendar, which makes them available for a vote but doesn’t guarantee they’ll get one.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We Democrats aren’t afraid of these votes. So what I proposed to the Republican leader is that the Senate hold up-or-down votes at a majority threshold on each of the Republicans bills he has outlined tonight as well as the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,” Schumer said from the Senate floor.


“If Democrats blow up Senate rules, millions of Americans will cease to have a voice in the Senate. Entire states would be shut out. Top Dems have floated breaking the rules for years now. This isn’t about new voting laws. It’s about silencing voters who inconvenience Democrats,” McConnell warned in a Twitter post.

“No party that would break the Senate can be trusted to seize unprecedented control over all 50 states’ election laws. The fact that many Democrats are this desperate for a one-party takeover of our democracy proves exactly why they cannot be allowed to do it,” McConnell declared.

Schumer railed against Republicans Monday night, tweeting, “The 2020 election was free, fair, and accurate. But out of Trump’s Big Lie, GOP legislatures across the country have passed laws making it harder to vote, harder to register to vote, and more. The Senate will act to protect our democracy and voting rights.”

“By blocking action on voting rights, Senate Republicans are saying they are perfectly fine with laws that restrict how younger, poorer, and non-white Americans typically vote. These laws are Jim Crow 2.0. The Senate will act to support our democracy and protect voting rights,” Schumer claimed.

Republicans are reminding Schumer of his past remarks:

  1. SCHUMER you fool, NY and Delaware are far more restrictive than Texas and Florida when it comes to voting rights. You will say any lie to gain more power.

    Remember you have railed against eliminating the filibuster laws unless it solely benefits the Democrats. That’s why I a NY voter don’t trust you for a second.

  2. How horrible to get what they want. To change our democracy is something only the left would think if.
    Cheats! So Power .hungry.
    Schumer needs an awakening. One that catches him off guard. That Party is out of control. Bunch of evildoers using Race, poverty & illegals as the source of takeover. You cannot cheat & be winners!

  3. Agree with all the comments above! Well said, we need to do our homework before casting our votes in November. These people: Pelosi, Schumer, Shift, Nadler, AOC and many more need to go. I hope the whole Democratic Party go down it is not what used to be. I think that since Kennedy this party started to go down the hill and it’s only purpose now is to destroy our country. There are very few Democrat politicians that still love our country, those needs to change party and show the American people that even them don’t trust their own party. Americans need to wake up if “We The People” want to do our part to save our country. Enough is enough!!! ❤️🇺🇸
