Schumer Wants to Change Senate Rules so Dems Can Pass New Voting Laws

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.8

Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer threatened to eliminate the filibuster if Republicans refuse to join Democrats in passing new voting laws. Republicans have argued that the proposed bill would enable mass voter fraud while violating state sovereignty. While Schumer strongly supports changing the filibuster now, in 2005, when Senate Democrats were in the minority in Congress, he said killing the filibuster would “be a doomsday for democracy.”
