Summary

Congressional Democrats, straitjacketed by Senate rules, can’t fix that without 51 votes to change those rules – and they don’t have them.Biden’s speech Tuesday calling for such a Senate rules change was snubbed by some civil rights groups upset that he didn’t spotlight voting rights from the start. But in typical gaslighting mode, Trump claims Democrats are trying to cut his party out of power forever.“This is Democrat-controlled legislation that will make it virtually impossible for Republicans to win elections," the 45th president said in a plea for $45 to “protect” elections."The Left's Voting Rights Bill," as Trump calls The Freedom to Vote Act in fundraising emails, would set national standards to make sure voting is secure and convenient for everyone, poll workers are safe, election administration is fair, and state legislators can’t overturn results or install partisans to do their bidding.It's hardly a deadly weapon. Last year, just one Republican senator supported the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to restore the law after the Supreme Court gutted it.
