…and neither does the GOP:
BREAKING: Senate Republicans block Democrats from starting debate on the Freedom to Vote Act.
The filibuster isn’t protecting bipartisanship, it’s ensuring its absence.

A) The Senate has failed to overcome a filibuster on the voting rights bill. It needed 60 yeas. The vote was 49 yeas and 51 nays. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) switched his vote at the end from yea to nay. Otherwise, it would have been a 50/50, party line vote.
