Joe Biden Whiffs again as voting rights push fails miserably

| Business News Today | Local News

President Joe Biden again failed to push legislation forward on his agenda, after visiting Capitol Hill on Thursday to pressure Democrats.

The president has tried to get the Senate to end the filibuster rules, which require a majority of 60 votes to move legislation forward, in order to pass legislation to federalize elections.

Biden started the week with an angry speech in Georgia denouncing the Senate for failing to advance legislation to federalize the elections. The President visited Capitol Hill on Thursday to seek the support of Senate Democrats to end the filibuster.

Her visit was overshadowed by Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) after she spoke in the United States Senate to defend the filibuster rules minutes before the president’s arrival.

“Like all other major civil rights bills, if we miss the first time, we can come back and try it a second time,” Biden said after the meeting. “We missed this time. We missed this time.

Biden’s approach was not positioned for success, however, appearing to be little more than a political theater that did not impress activists.

Later Thursday evening, the president met with Sinema and Senator Joe Manchin to discuss his platform, but there was no noticeable movement in their opposition to his Build Back Better program or his attempt to federalize the elections.

The White House continues to defend Biden’s progress, despite a record number of polls and two failed attempts to pass major legislation.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki highlighted Biden’s success in passing an infrastructure bill and the 1.9 coronavirus emergency spending bill on Thursday. trillion dollars as proof of progress.

“Guess I’m one-sided – but pretty impressive considering the leeway we had in the Senate and the challenges we had against us,” she said.
