Why are Democrats becoming SO DESPERATE to pass legislation that most of them can't even describe the contents of?

Senate Democrats are escalating pressure on Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) to get behind using the “nuclear option” to change the filibuster and break a months-long stalemate on voting rights legislation.

The flurry of talks — including dedicating a closed-door caucus lunch to the issue despite a public focus on passing President Biden’s climate and social spending bill — comes as Democrats are facing intense pressure to pass election legislation though there isn’t yet a clear path forward.

A group of Democrats, tapped by Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), met with Manchin Tuesday as part of rolling discussions. But Manchin, simultaneously, is pushing for rules changes to be bipartisan and holding talks with Republicans, who are unlikely to support the sort of reform needed to get voting legislation passed.


Underscoring the frustration within the caucus, Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) spoke out during the Democratic lunch, and separately on the Senate floor, about the need to pass voting rights legislation before taking up the Build Back Better legislation and that it would be “irresponsible” for Democrats not to act.

All I hear Democrat leaders say is that this legislation will make things more equitable for American voters. Is it something that makes it easier for disabled people to vote?

It sounds very suspicious. And to want to activate the "Nuclear Option", reeks of desperation. Something's not right.

Any informed guesses as to what this legislation will actually mean at the voter/precinct/ballot-box/vote-tallying level???

If I had to guess, it will probably include mailing ballots to every address in the country.

Likely eliminating any ID requirements, allowing ballots to be counted regardless of how late they are received and requiring the use of dominion machines.

More people voted in 2020 then ever before...in a pandemic. There is no need to help people vote.

Dems should go for it. Republicans would do it. Look what they did with the SCOTUS. Republicans have no shame. Why should Dems?

Warnock is toast in GA and knows it, his only chance to stay in the seat is by "other" means.

The voter-election fraud machine must be breaking down internally.

More like election cheating. They've already got a foothold with their corrupt poll workers.

I think the 'nuclear' option is enriching those opposed. Sadly, it works. That's how we got the ACA act, and how politicians will sell us out as long as there's enough money in it for them.
We aren't too far from being a one party system as it is; just a few more laws to go.

False. Republicans have always played by the rules, which is their weakness. They haven't been willing to play dirty like the Democrats.

As the OP asked, go for what? What exactly does the proposed legislation do?

Democrats setting up the fixes and rigging.

No wonder Biden was "extra bold" in his recent speech with all his bulls#t tough talk roflmao.

They know it's rigged and are sure they can get away with it again 😲

Who was it that eliminated the filibuster for all Presidential nominations except Supreme Court Justices?


Look what they did with the SCOTUS.

What did they do? Their job, based on their Constitutionally delegated powers?

They don't, obviously, just look at what they are doing... look at everything they do...

It's legislation designed to forever spread the "cheat" by way of mail-in ballots. If it were to pass, elections would, for all practical purposes be utterly pointless.

Election cheating on a national scale will also mean that millions of US citizens will have no representation whatsoever at the Federal Level and until states like Texas and Florida go "blue" they will have no say at the Federal level. Tens of Millions will be permanently disenfranchised.

Those type consequences may well force a show down that results in the break up of the Union......which IMHO is long overdue.
