Schumer wants to pass a bill that transforms the voting process in America. The bill would federalize control of elections which is contrary to the Constitution. The Constitution expressly gives the management of elections to the states. The bill may also make provisions to reduce the voting age to 16 and allow non-citizens to vote. It will also expand mail-in voting.
During his time at the microphone, the camera captured the emotions and disgust of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). Manchin is one of two Democrats, along with Senator Sinema of Arizona, preventing the passage of the $3.5 Trillion reconciliation spending bill. This piece of legislation is a vital part of President Joe Biden’s plan, and Manchin and Sinema are alone on the Democrat side, not wanting to see this pork-filled bill pass the Senate and move on to the House.
