Democrats stomp feet as sweeping voting bill fails to advance in Senate
Democrats keep calling the bill "Voter Rights Bill". Why dont they just call it what it truly is: "Ensure Democrats Win Bill"?
Senate Republicans stopped Democrats’ sweeping voting rights bill from advancing on the Senate floor Tuesday, unanimously voting against beginning its debate and therefore essentially killing it.
Though every Democrat voted to advance the bill, Republicans labeled it as nothing more than a power grab, with GOP leadership vowing to stop it. The bill received 50 votes in favor, but needed 60 to overcome a legislative filibuster.
