Moderate Dem Senator indicates he will not support leftist voting bill

Sens. Joe Manchin (WV-D) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) urged lawmakers Monday to create a bipartisan version of the Voting Right Act rather than supporting the current Democrat-led legislation, virtually destroying any chances of the leftist overhaul passing Congress.

“Congress must come together — just as we have done time and again — to reaffirm our longstanding bipartisan commitment to free, accessible, and secure elections for all,” Manchin and Murkowski wrote, according to the Washington Examiner.

The letter reveals the current legislation lacks the support to pass in the Senate. Manchin previously reported he would not supported the current voting reform law passed by the House.

No Republicans currently support the bill. But many oppose any type of nationalized election law changes.

“I believe it’s unconstitutional. And it represents an effort to try to do through the backdoor what they’re doing to through the front door through S. 1 and H.R. 1,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) told The Hill about the bill championed by Democrats.

In the letter, Manchin and  Murkowski explained the re-authorization of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 has long enjoyed bipartisan support and should be passed by the Senate instead of the current For the People Act.

“Protecting Americans’ access to democracy has not been a partisan issue for the past 56 years, and we must not allow it to become one now,” Murkowski and Manchin wrote.

Though an improvement over the current Democrat-fueled measure, the new focus by the two senators remains unlikely to garner significant support.

  5. HR 1 is an immediate threat to what ever is left of our democratic republic. Thank you Joe Manchin for recognizing this disaster piece of legislation.

    1. No way should we trust ANY Election legislation out of Congress. On January 6 they all lined up to attack Election Integrity & shove voter fraud down our throats.

  6. Why does American Digest allow these types of responses when have no relation to the subject?
    These creeps want free advertising at American Digest and the readers’ expense. Enough of this crap!

  7. Get rid of these ads to work at home and make high wages when it does not really work and is false ads. This is a comment section for the article and not an advertising site

    1. It is actually OK that these dummies advertise their flagrant income amounts….what they don’t realize is that the IRS is monitoring every single one of these dummies, and they will get a personal visit from the IRS Special Agent, (AFTER THEY HAVE CHECKED THEIR BANK ACCOUNTS, SAVINGS ACCOUNTS, ALL VACATION TRAVELS FOR THE PAST TEN YEARS) , so I just smile, and think of the [email protected] that they put themselves thru by bragging!!

  8. A real American “Joe Manchin” Very refreshing to see someone in the Dem party stand for what is right.
    A real American.
    Thank you Joe!!!

    1. Its so refreshing to see a dem who actually thinks for themself! Most are too lazy or stupid! Like a bunch of lemmings following their brainless leader!

  9. There isn’t an error in the Bible about age. People used to live longer for a purpose. When Israel left Egypt and headed toward the land they were promised, God decided that our lifespan should be shortened to 120 years. Previously, some people had lived several hundred years for a purpose, to do things HE needed them to do. HE has the power and authority to make those changes. If the Liberals are scared, GOOD! They should be for what they’re doing to America and all humans.

  10. Well, I think I have “had it” with this site..I am sick of “scanning ” asap” through the trash posted by these phonies ! These “work at home” CON ARTISTS ,are screwing people who may be in a desperate situation.. Bottom line, the “money” ONLY travels one way. FROM the “mark” to the con artist ! ( NO, i am NOT that stupid) but there are MANY people with “limited” mental capacity who WILL fall prey to these scum !

  11. Don’t feel alone!
    WHY do people talk about their INCOMES an BLOGS where the STORY has NOTHING to DO with MONEY!
    Just to BRAG?

  12. Thank you Joe & Lisa 🙂
    Wish there were more like YOU that understand integrity, honesty and transparency!

  13. I mean with the amount of 6 year old’s and 130 year old’s,Dead People,non existent people and flat out illegal voting people in the last election! Well I have no clue as to why? On earth the libbertards now think they need even more illegal votes made legal in the next election! I mean they will just make more voters as the need arises as I see it.

  14. God bless The Two MnM Senators. Thank you for being true Americans. Please keep protecting our freedom of speech and the necessasity of open discussion and conversation. God bless us all and may we truly love one another.

  15. Manchin is a brave man to go against those two Marxist Pelosi and Schumer. Its nice to know at least one Democrat still supports our great country

  16. Does any intelligent person believe the dem’s did not cheat in the 2020 election? Or maybe you do not care and love communism—sad for all the sickos backing the commies here in America—prayers needed !!!

  17. If its fir a real problem then good to go if its a leftist wish list its a no go. Too much pork in this bill eliminate it.

  18. I get paid over $190 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 15k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.
