Press Secretary Jen Psaki thinks that Democrat’s move to try to end the filibuster “struck a nerve,” and she would be right.
The filibuster was put into place to stop terrible ideas from making their way from politicians’ brains onto paper and signed into law. The filibuster, of course, has been used for very partisan issues and is currently being discussed when it comes to federal voting laws.
Wouldn’t it be just as easy to sign the legislation into law that requires the federal government to pay for identification for every citizen from taxpayer dollars and make voter identification mandatory? There should be a second look at the vetting process for citizens showing up to polling places. The country’s founders did not foresee this many citizens and a border scenario like the modern-day United States.
When a reporter said that President Joe Biden’s voting plans remind Americans of former President Donald Trump’s voter fraud claims, Psaki responded, “I think anyone would note there’s a night and day difference between fomenting an insurrection on lies debunked and making true objective statements, which is what the president made yesterday.”
The primary way voting rights will get changed if the filibuster is ended or the Democrats have enough votes, with Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) defending the filibuster.
Psaki continued, “I know there have been a lot of allegations about the inflammatory tone of yesterday’s address, which is amusing on many levels given how many people sat patiently for the former president during the prior four years.”
To end the filibuster would take 60 votes. With the filibuster in place, there are no voting changes. That would be a good thing, and the Democrats need to give it up. There’s nothing they can do to push forward the changes they want for the country, and the changes wouldn’t give Americans more freedom and rights. It would allow fraud to take place on unprecedented levels. Voter identification laws protect democracy more than hurt it.
The Supreme Court said, “not only is the risk of voter fraud real,” but “it could affect the outcome of a close election.”
It would mainly happen in smaller elections, but small-town politics usually make the biggest changes in people’s lives. Focusing on election security at this point would be the safest way to ensure everyone has the transparency in their election process and they know that there’s a low chance of voter fraud.
Psaki said that ultimately the most significant way to undermine democracy is to continue perpetuating “the big lie” that Trump pushed forward.
