Biden is headed to Georgia today to call for changes to filibuster rules to pass legislation, overhauling U.S. elezioni.

Biden will be in Georgia with Vice President Kamala Harris to make his pitch to the American people. They will visit Ebenezer Baptist Church and place a wreath at the crypt of Martin Luther King Jr. e sua moglie, Coretta Scott King.

Biden said in an interview last month that he would support an exception to the Senato’s filibuster rule when it comes to the package that passed the Democrat-controlled House earlier this year but hit a roadblock in the Senate.

Getting rid of the filibuster rule would lower the typical 60-vote threshold for passage to 50. In the split 50-50 Senato, Harris can break a tie, allowing Democrats to push past Republicans.

Con Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., essentially ending Biden's chances to pass Build Back Better, i Democratici si sono orientati verso la creazione di un quadro elettorale federale, which Republicans say is little more than anelection takeover scheme.”

Like other Democrats, including Vice President Kamala Harris, Senate Majority Leader Church Schumer, D-N.Y., e Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., Presidente della Camera Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., also tied the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to the need for federal election reform toprotect our Constitution and our democracy.
