Radicals Blame Dem. Senator’s Manchin, Sinema For Texas Shooting

The Supreme Court is conservative because the left pressured Majority Leader Harry Reid to end the filibuster for Federal Judges.

Now they are screaming at Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Krysten Sinema (D-AZ) demanding they vote to end the filibuster so the U.S. Senate can pass Un-Constitutional gun laws without any GOP support.

While Senate rules still require just a simple majority to actually pass a bill, cloture is one of the procedural steps along the way that requires a supermajority of 60 votes to end debate (FILIBUSTER) on bills.

What is a fili­buster? 

In the Senate, a fili­buster is an attempt to delay or block a vote on a piece of legis­la­tion or a confirm­a­tion. To under­stand the fili­buster, it’s neces­sary first to consider how the Senate passes a bill. When a senator or a group of senat­ors intro­duces a new bill, it goes to the appro­pri­ate commit­tee for discus­sion, hear­ings, and amend­ments. If a major­ity of that commit­tee votes in favor, the bill moves to the Senate floor for debate.

Once a bill gets to a vote on the Senate floor, it requires a simple major­ity of 51 votes to pass after debate has ended. But there’s a catch: before it can get to a vote, it actu­ally takes 60 votes to cut off debate, which is why a 60-vote super­ma­jor­ity is now considered the de facto minimum for passing legis­la­tion in the Senate.

Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced he won’t budge on the Senate filibuster after at least 19 children were killed in a Texas school shooting.

“It makes no sense why we can’t do common-sense things to try to prevent some of this from happening,” Manchin told reporters at the Capitol. “It’s just unbelievable how we got here as a society.”

“It’s just absolutely horrific,” he said. “You all know where I stand — I’ll do anything I can.”

Following Manchin’s announcement Leftists trashed moderates Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday, blaming the tragedy on their stance against defeating the filibuster.

“We are horrified and heartbroken by the senseless tragedy unfolding at Robb Elementary School in Texas and grateful to the first responders for acting swiftly. No families should ever have to fear violence in their children’s schools,” Sinema tweeted in response to the shooting that killed 19 children.

If the left is ever able to able to end the filibuster rule, a future GOP majority will also be able to take advantage of it, passing partisan legislation without any consideration of the other side of the aisle.

As I started the article, the filibuster exception is why Justices Kavanaugh and Barrett are on the Supreme Court, both nominations only required a simple majority for their confirmation.
