DC: Sinema Digs in on Filibuster Defense

Source: Common Dreams

“Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona is refusing to budge from her vow to uphold the archaic [sic] legislative filibuster as congressional Democrats and the White House attempt to chart a path forward for their faltering voting rights agenda amid the GOP’s nationwide (and intensifying) assault on the franchise. In recent months, Senate Republicans have used the 60-vote filibuster rule to block debate on a sweeping pro-democracy bill known as the For the People Act; Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-W.Va.) compromise measure, the Freedom to Vote Act; and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which would restore parts of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that were gutted by the Supreme Court.” (11/21/21)
