In the development of Sumerian voting legislation: “Everything is on the table”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday did not rule out eliminating violations of the right to vote as Democrats are increasingly dissatisfied with state-wide efforts to tighten voting rules.

“Everything is on the table,” Schumer told reporters at the Capitol about overcoming the GOP’s strong opposition to Democrat legislation to set federal standards for access to voting.

Sumer’s comments make it difficult for Democrats to vote in order to shut down a special session in which a group of Texas lawmakers fled the state to Washington and Texas Republicans seek to pass new comprehensive electoral laws.

Lawmakers met with Sumer and asked the Senate to pass a law on voting and election reform called S.1, while acknowledging their withdrawal from the state legislature is a temporary move that needs a permanent federal solution.

Sumer called fleeing state lawmakers “brave” and “brave,” and blew up Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for trying to enforce new voting restrictions in the wake of former President Trump’s 2020 election defeat.

“What the Republican governor is doing in Texas is just disgusting, disgusting,” Schumer said. “Watching what these brave people do will boil my blood … when there is no serious evidence of fraud by voters.”

After welcoming the fleeing Texas Democrats to the Capitol, Schumer said, “These people will be remembered on the right side of history. The governor and Republican legislators will remember the dark and wrong sides of history.”

The U.S. House has already repealed the Democrats’ comprehensive election reform bill, however Senate Republicans balanced elections in June and fireplace funding reforms as they struggled to seize power.

The bill needed 60 votes to advance in the Senate, but Republicans blocked the bill because Democrats won only 50 seats. Still, some Democrats, like Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, have opposed the complete elimination of the balance.

Some prominent Democrats are disappointed with the slowness of the work on the voting bills James Cliburn of South Carolina, President Biden and those in the hurdle are demanding support for a narrow filibuster exception, such as the right to vote on constitutional issues.

Sumer’s response on Tuesday showed he was open to the idea, but the biggest question is whether he has the 50 votes needed to do so.
