Hillary Clinton calls for Senate to “adjust the rules” to pass election bills

Source: Fox News

“Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged Democratic lawmakers on Monday to alter Senate rules so that it could ‘protect Americans’ right to vote’. Quoting the president who signed the Voting Rights Act, she tweeted: ‘The right to vote is the basic right without which all others are meaningless,’ Lyndon B. Johnson said. ‘It gives people, people as individuals, control over their own destinies.’ It’s time Senate Democrats adjust the rules to protect Americans’ right to vote.’ Her comments came as Democrats have pushed for an end to the filibuster in order to pass voting reforms and other legislation. Clinton advocated for ending the filibuster in September, arguing that Republicans didn’t respect the rule of law.” (01/10/22)
