Biden Finally Calls For Senate Filibuster Rule Change To Pass Voting Rights Legislation

During the president’s speech Tuesday, he challenged the Senate to end the antiquated procedural rule standing in the way of passing voting rights legislation.
Appearing in Atlanta alongside Vice President Kamala Harris, President Joe Biden finally called for an end to the filibuster to pass needed voting rights and democracy reform legislation. Both the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act stalled in the Senate awaiting action. Until now, Republican obstruction has prevented even a conversation of the two bills.  
In his opening remarks Tuesday, the president conceded that prior ways of responding to Democracy no longer work. 
“In the life of our nation, there are moments so stark that they divide all that came before and everything that followed,” Biden began. “They stopped time; they rip away the trivial from the essential. And they force us to confront hard truths about ourselves, about our institutions and about our Democracy.”
