‘You Do not See Buildings Falling Down in America’ Shocked Mayor Says After 12-Story Condominium ‘Actually Pancaked’

Republicans have debate on Tuesday night For the People’s Law, an important part of the Democratic agenda to protect democracy, expand and strengthen the right to vote, and reduce the influence of dark money in elections. As the Senators voted on the motion to begin debating the bill, it was revealed that the GOP whipper, Senator John Thune of South Dakota, had announced another critical piece of democratic legislation, the Infrastructure Bill.

GOP senators appeared to be orchestrating a full and complete shutdown of key laws that are critical to President Joe Biden’s progressive agenda.

The Democratic majority leader Schumer immediately condemned the Republicans “blockade”.

Senator Thune also said Republicans would oppose a scaled-down version of a voting law:

Thune contradicts Blunt when asked whether the GOP leadership would speak out against closer measures like the VRA: “I suspect yes.”

“It just replaces the sovereignty of a state through the federal government, and that is a bridge that I believe our members are unwilling to cross.” https://t.co/mmVduM5fPH

60 votes were required to start the debate on the Voting Rights Act. The application failed with 50 to 50 votes. During the vote, GOP minority leader Mitch mcConnell could be seen huddling with other top Republican senators, including John Cornyn of Texas and John Kennedy of Louisiana.

The only way to get the bill passed now would be for a simple majority of Senators to agree to kill the 60-vote filibuster. Some support a change to 55 votes. Democratic Senators Joe Manchin from West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema from Arizona had steadfastly refused to support the filibuster’s assassination.

“This is a dark day in this country,” Al Sharpton said on MSNBC.

“This is a dark day for Republicans,” responded host Nicolle Wallace. “Republicans will not only ignore norms, they will burn them down,” she told host Ari Melber during the handover.

Suffrage expert Ari Berman interfered and chastised the GOP:

Vote on For the People Act does not refer to the legislation itself, but rather to whether to open a debate on the bill. Republicans are so afraid of democracy that they won’t even allow a debate on how to fix it
