Now that the Democrats’ efforts to eliminate the filibuster blew up in their faces, they have no Plan B. They needed to abolish the filibuster to have any chance of passing their elections takeover bill this week, but they couldn’t even get that done. Senators Kirsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) were a brick wall that kept the filibuster in place, thanks to their “No” votes.
Here’s a secret that no one in the media or the Democrat party is willing to admit: There were actually a lot more Democrat Senators who are opposed to eliminating the filibuster than just Manchin and Sinema. Those two are simply providing cover for their colleagues who are up for reelection this year.
Still, credit where credit is due. The Democrats’ radical agenda would have been unstoppable if the filibuster got nuked. Build Back Better, the Green New Deal, amnesty for tens of millions, gun confiscation laws, tax hikes for the middle class, statehood for DC and Puerto Rico, and a packed Supreme Court would be America’s future if the filibuster had been eliminated.
Here’s a meme recreation of the final vote attempting to eliminate the filibuster!
