Joe Biden Looked ‘Quite Angry’ After Meeting With Senate Democrats At The Capitol

In the aftermath of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s statement earlier today that she would not support any move to repeal the filibuster, President Joe Biden paid a visit to the United States Capitol to speak with Senate Democrats. Democrats’ poorly veiled attempt to federalize elections as a “voting rights” measure.

Joe Biden is doubtful that Democrats’ primary election and voting rights legislation can pass Congress this year. He spoke in the Capitol after Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, a crucial Democratic colleague, expressed her opposition to changing Senate rules to get the measure past a Republican filibuster.

Biden had traveled to Capitol Hill to urge Democratic senators in a closed-door meeting, but he was not enthusiastic when he exited. He pledged to keep working for the broad measure that proponents say is necessary to safeguard elections.

Moreover, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, says the move could “save the Senate as an institution.” Senator Angus King, an independent, believes that the risk of changing the rules outweighs the consequences for the states.

The bill would create national election laws that would take precedence over Republican state legislation. It would also restore the Justice Department’s authority to enforce election regulations in areas with a history of prejudice. It will be a significant campaign promise to Black voters if it fails to pass, coming just before the November elections.

According to news, Biden told them it’s an “opportunity to do something that will do so much good for so many people at a time when it’s so needed.” Democrats have promised to provoke a public battle on the Senate floor over the bill, which could last days.

Senator Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, questioned Manchin and Sinema’s desire for cooperation. They will discuss the measure without being hindered by a filibuster thanks to their new technique, which employs a procedural shortcut. The mechanics are as follows: An unrelated law that both houses had already approved was revised and passed by the House.
