Report: Dianne Feinstein is being pressured to end the filibuster

More than 100 groups have joined a letter sent to Sen. Dianne Feistein (D-CA) to urge her to vote in support an end or exception to the filibuster to help passing the For the People Act.

The letter specifically asked the senator to “publicly acknowledge that our democracy is in danger.”

The signers have requested for Feinstein to “publicly affirm that you will do everything in your power to help pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act through all means possible, including, if necessary, through abolishing, reforming, or providing an exception to the Senate filibuster.”

Feistein served as a co-sponsor of both bills. The For the People Acts seeks to nationalize many voter laws traditionally held by individual states.

The John Lewis Voting Rights Acts seeks to “restore provisions of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that were struck down by the Supreme Court in 2013 on grounds that they were obsolete.”

The act seeks to guard against voting rights violations rather than to take over many voting rights as the For the People Act proposes.

Though Feinstein supports the legislation, she has not pushed abolishing the filibuster as some Senate Democrats have. the filibuster requires a 60 vote supermajority to pass most Senate legislation rather than a simple 51 vote majority.

“These new voter suppression laws undermine our democracy and can’t be allowed to stand….The truth is that our election systems are secure and widespread voter fraud doesn’t exist. Yet these new state laws show a stubborn commitment to enact changes that would make it harder to vote, not easier. That effort can’t be allowed to continue,” Feinstein said in a statement on Monday, according to The Hill.

My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.
