This Tuesday, Senate Republicans banned a Joe Biden’s Cabinet Proposal Aiming for Electoral Reform Expands Access to Voting.
Under the control of the Democrats, the Senate of Congress held a procedural vote on People’s Law (for a people’s law) with the intent that at least 10 Republicans vote in favor of exceeding the necessary number of votes of 60; However, it was not.
The results of the vote were split, 50 in favor of the Democrats and 50 against the Republicans.
Amendments to the People’s Act include 15 days of early voting and voting by mail. In addition to imposing restrictions on campaign financing, as well as requiring public advertising of taxes for presidential candidates.
Senate leaders talked about the vote
for this part, Chuck SchumerThe Senate Majority Leader, said the Democratic initiative aims to combat restrictive ballot laws in Republican-led states such as Georgia.
It is not a vote on a specific policy. It is not a vote on this or that bill. It’s a vote on whether the Senate should simply debate the right to vote,” Schumer said last Monday.
“Former President Donald Trump set the Republican state legislatures on fire with his vile lies, and now they have launched the largest vote suppression effort in the past 80 years,” he added.
Schumer accused the opposition, stressing that the Republican Party “does not even want to discuss” the issue.
In response, the Senate Minority Leader said: Mitch McConnellHe emphasized that electoral reform would not progress because it was a bill “designed to fail.”
McConnell described the initiative as a “radical proposal” aimed at “permanently and permanently rigging US election rules in favor of the Democrats.” That is why the Senate will not waive this disastrous proposal.”
