When Democrats gained control of the entire Federal Government in 2020, the Left thought they had the power to roll over any opposition to their radical agenda.
But so far it hasn’t worked out that way.
And now a top Senate Democrat just dealt a devastating blow to Joe Biden’s Presidency.
In a recent op-ed for The Washington Post, Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema officially announced that she would not vote to eliminate or weaken the 60 vote threshold required to end debate and break a filibuster in the Senate.
Sinema’s op-ed came out just one day before Democrats were set to hold a vote on the centerpiece of their legislative agenda, H.R. 1/S.1, which would impose nationwide voter fraud through weakening voter id laws combined with expanding universal mail-in voting and ballot harvesting to all 50 states.
“The best way to achieve durable, lasting results? Bipartisan cooperation. … It’s no secret that I oppose eliminating the Senate’s 60-vote threshold. I held the same view during three terms in the U.S. House, and said the same after I was elected to the Senate in 2018. If anyone expected me to reverse my position because my party now controls the Senate, they should know that my approach to legislating in Congress is the same whether in the minority or majority,” Sinema wrote.
Sinema went on to hint that there were other Democrats in the caucus who opposed ending the filibuster but wouldn’t speak out because of fear of blowback from the leftwing base.
“It is time for the Senate to debate the legislative filibuster, so Senators and our constituents can hear and fully consider the concerns and consequences. Hopefully, Senators can then focus on crafting policies through open legislative processes and amendments, finding compromises that earn broad support,” Sinema added.
This is bad news for Biden and the Democrats, as everything from gun control to amnesty to statehood for D.C. to seizing control of federal elections will now likely wind up in the legislative graveyard.
Without ending the filibuster, most of Biden’s legislative priorities could be dead on arrival.
And it won’t be because of McConnell or “Republican obstructionism,” as Democrats don’t even have 50 votes in their own caucus to support much of the Left’s radical agenda.
