The Democrat Party is facing a crossroads.
One bad decision could ruin everything.
Now Hillary Clinton hit Democrats with this ultimatum that forced a terrible choice.
Hillary Clinton continued to prod Senate Democrats to eliminate the filibuster and ram a scheme through the Senate with just 51 votes that Republicans argue would enshrine mass voter fraud in American elections by gutting voter ID laws, imposing nationwide vote-by-mail and ballot harvesting, and allowing millions of illegal aliens to register to vote without facing criminal penalties.
Clinton tweeted out a map of states where Republicans are working to secure the vote with election integrity measures and spread the Big Lie that guaranteeing the integrity of the vote count amounted to Jim Crow.
“We can preserve the filibuster, or we can preserve the voting rights of people of color. But we can’t do both,” Clinton wrote.
Clinton’s demand came one day after West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin published an op-ed in the Washington Post claiming that he would not vote to weaken or eliminate the filibuster under any circumstances.
“The filibuster is a critical tool to protecting that input and our democratic form of government. That is why I have said it before and will say it again to remove any shred of doubt: There is no circumstance in which I will vote to eliminate or weaken the filibuster. The time has come to end these political games, and to usher a new era of bipartisanship where we find common ground on the major policy debates facing our nation,” Manchin exclaimed.
Manchin warned that if Democrats junked the filibuster for short-term political gain, they would pay the price once Republicans eventually held Congress and the White House.
“Unfortunately, our leaders in the Senate fail to realize what goes around comes around. We should all be alarmed at how the budget reconciliation process is being used by both parties to stifle debate around the major issues facing our country today. Legislating was never supposed to be easy. It is hard work to address the needs of both rural and urban communities in a single piece of legislation, but it is the work we were elected to do,” the West Virginia Democrat added.
Democrats only have 50 votes in the Senate.
Without Manchin’s support they cannot eliminate the filibuster and pass the rest of Joe Biden’s socialist agenda which includes amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, making Washington, D.C. the 51st state and banning and confiscating guns.
Democrats have no leverage to force Manchin to change his mind.
Donald Trump won West Virginia by nearly 40 points and Manchin is likely the last Democrat the state will ever send to the Senate.
But activist Democrats are pushing to abolish the filibuster and press pedal to the metal to ram Joe Biden’s radical agenda through Congress because they know time is running out before the midterm elections, and Republicans are likely to win back control of Congress.
