The battle for Biden's right to vote against the Republican wall - Corriere.it


Washington
– The people’s law, Democrats’ right to vote on the bill with the full support of Joe Biden does not cross the Republican wall in the Senate. A sharp defeat for the progressive side and the president’s reform agenda. But the basic problem can only be the first in a long sequence. Republicans are using a tool broken, blocking to the bitter end, to paralyze parliamentary debate and sabotage the administration’s plans, from arms control to economic recovery measures.

I found these maneuvers disgusting Biden said to prevent this action. And in the evening, Vice President Kamala Harris commented, visibly disappointed, in front of the cameras: Our battle does not end there. After a day of bitter controversy, the scheme devised by Senator Jeff Merkley garnered all 50 Democratic votes, including moderate Joe Manchin, but failed to reach the 60 mark needed to reach the House of Representatives. The House of Representatives, which is controlled by Democrats, had approved a series of measures in response to the Republican attack on the territory. Donald Trump, after losing the November 2020 presidential election, pushed governors to pass state laws that made it difficult for ethnic minorities to reach the polls., starting with African Americans.


The series began in Georgia and ArizonaThe new states are critical to Biden’s victory. Rules were introduced that, among other things, complicate postal voting. In some cases, the restrictions are simply ridiculous. In Georgia, among other things, it will henceforth be forbidden to bring food or water to people queuing outside polling stations. The conservative wave in the south spread quickly across most of the country: now 14 countries have adopted similar models. Texas can also be added in the fall. Therefore, the reaction of Democrats began from the Washington Congress, with the rallying of not only the White House, but also former President Barack Obama.

Provided yesterday sank provided Modernization of voting procedures, and above all, many simplifications: from registration to delivery of ballot papers, in person or by correspondence. At this point there is still one possibility. Senator Joe Manchin, the most moderate Democrat, will try to broker another formula that meets some of the Republicans’ demands. For example, provided that the voter is always identified with an identity document. Obama agreed. But if the Mansion initiative also doesn’t work, Biden has already warned that he will address an issue broken. Specifically, he will have to persuade the moderate wing (Manchin, Kirsten Senema and others) to support the nuclear option: Senators vote by majority to end obstruction. Republicans did this when they were holding the Senate. Now that they are in the minority, they are talking about a dangerous attack on democracy.
