They’re pretty sad over at The Atlantic, where they’re admitting that “a nationwide standard of voting rights” is as good as dead, thanks to Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin.

Vice President Kamala Harris was asked about Sinema and Manchin at a Martin Luther King day volunteer event in Washington, and replied that she was “not going to absolve … any member of the United States Senate from taking on a responsibility to follow through on the oath that they all took to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” The same Constitution that leaves voting up to the states?
VP Harris said she is "not going to absolve" any member of the Senate who will not take action to pass voting rights legislation when asked specifically about Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. https://t.co/9Te5oZ7F2a

Maybe this will be the final push that gets Sinema and Manchin to cave on the filibuster.
I'm sure the disapproval of the least popular woman in politics is absolutely devastating to them…https://t.co/bS5aV04UnH

Way to expend that 29% approval rating…

Oh yes I'm sure this will make them sweat.

Whenever a bill addressing voting rights comes up, she should do that. But neither of these bill has anything to do with voting rights.

Wow this must be tough for manchin and sinema to hear that they won’t get a classic K-Hive absolution

How intimidated they must feel…

How on Earth will Manchin and Sinema sleep tonight?

As if Sinema and Manchin need Kamala’s approval or “absolution.” 😏

She has a lower approval rating than HIV at this point so I think they will be ok.

So disappointing. I’m sure Sinema cares about absolution from the lowest polling politician in office whose own party is trying to replace her on the bottom of the ticket, which they’d do in a heartbeat if they didn’t have to also replace the top of the ticket.
