One Nation applauded Senator Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) for making clear that she remains opposed to renewed attempts by liberals in the Senate to change the rules to ram through a radical federal takeover of American elections.
Yesterday Politico reported:
The Arizona moderate is making clear that she intends to keep protecting the Senate’s 60-vote requirement on most legislation and she isn’t ready to entertain changing rules to pass sweeping elections or voting legislation with a simple majority. Her Democratic colleagues have been discussing those revisions as they weigh dropping their focus on President Joe Biden’s $1.7 trillion climate and social spending bill and pivoting to voting rights, though it’s not clear that avenue will be any more successful.
In a statement to POLITICO, a spokesperson said that Sinema “continues to support the Senate’s 60-vote threshold, to protect the country from repeated radical reversals in federal policy which would cement uncertainty, deepen divisions, and further erode Americans’ confidence in our government.” Since joining the Senate in 2019, Sinema’s been a fierce defender of the filibuster and warned that reversing it could lead to terrible outcomes for Democrats down the line.
“Senator Sinema understands that rigging the rules of the Senate to ram through radical legislation does neither party any favors in the short term, and makes the country worse off in the long term. We encourage her to continue standing against liberal attempts to remake the Senate, and by extension our country.” -One Nation President Steven Law
