Hillary Clinton is calling on the Senate to “adjust the rules” to pass Democrats’ election bills that have become the new focus of the Biden admin since “Build Back Better” failed to pass.
Hillary tweeted “‘The right to vote is the basic right without which all others are meaningless,’ Lyndon B. Johnson said. ‘It gives people, people as individuals, control over their own destinies.’”
“It’s time Senate Democrats adjust the rules to protect Americans’ right to vote,” she added.
Democrats have pushed for an end to the filibuster but with only 50 members in the Senate have a major roadblock in Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema who have been vocal opponents to ending the filibuster.
Hillary said in September “Keeping the filibuster now, when you’re dealing with a political party that does not respect the rule of law, does not even respect the process unless it works for them, you know, witness what they did to Merrick Garland when President Obama had every right to appoint a Supreme Court justice.”
