Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Monday said the senate will vote later this month on whether to change filibuster rules to make it easier to pass a ‘voting rights’ bill.
The voting rights legislation will mandate ballot harvesting, ban voter ID and give taxpayer money to campaigns.
The new bill will make it easier for Democrats to steal elections which is why Schumer wants to nuke the filibuster to ram it through Congress before the midterms.

The Democrats tried to pass this voting bill FOUR TIMES last year and were blocked by Republicans.
The Dems are not backing down and Schumer said he’s eyeing a change to the filibuster to move this bill forward.
“Much like the violent insurrectionists who stormed the U.S. Capitol nearly one year ago, Republican officials in states across the country have seized on the former president’s Big Lie about widespread voter fraud to enact anti-democratic legislation,” Schumer said in a letter to Democratic senators on Monday. “We can and must take strong action to stop this anti-democratic march.”
Years ago Schumer said killing the filibuster was the “rubber stamp of dictatorship” and a “doomsday for democracy.”
