Democrats Push to Pass Voting Rights Bill and End the Filibuster

Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is expected to force votes this week on Democrat voting rights legislation. However, Republicans would use the 60-vote legislative filibuster to block the vote. Democrats want to change or get rid of the filibuster rule, but they lack support from all 50 members, which they would need for this measure.
