I’m well versed in the language of white, conservative obstructionism and its fruitless projections of goodwill.
The conservative Democrats' continual support for the filibuster has destroyed any optimism I've had that they'd agree to bypass it to advance a voting rights bill.
Their obstruction would place them on the wrong side of history — not that it matters to them, apparently.
Joy: Can you tell us any evidence that Manchin or Sinema has given publicly or to you that they care more about voting rights and democracy continuing than about the filibuster?
Because I haven’t seen any evidence that they actually have more support for voting rights and democracy than they do for the filibuster.
Schumer: Well, we gotta keep pressing them and pressing them and pressing them until they do.
Their willful ignorance isn’t deterred by fear over their place in history; if it were, they’d have supported bypassing the filibuster months ago. »
