President Biden is pushing for new voting laws. Biden and Senate Democrats are under increasing pressure to alter the chamber’s filibuster rules in an effort to pass voting rights measures. It’s a move Senator Tina Smith agrees with…

“You know I’m in favor of abolishing the filibuster, state legislatures and city councils function well because at the end of the day, the majority gets to decide.”

As is it now, the filibuster requires 60 votes to move bills forward. Democrats only have the majority because of Vice President Harris’ ability to be the tie-breaking vote. Republicans are calling Democrats’ efforts to change the rules a “partisan power grab.”
