Democratic senators (well, all but two of them) are currently trying to argue that the only way to save our democracy is to nuke the filibuster. How else are we going to protect voting rights in this country, which we thought we already have but apparently do not?
Well, for what it’s worth, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer pretty much nuked that narrative on MSNBC this morning:
SEN. SCHUMER admits that nuking the Senate is just about Democrats winning elections:
"They're saying things like ‘I'll lose my election if the legislature is allowed to do this in my state’”

Ah. So that’s what this is really about, then.
Schumer is the worst of the worst. https://t.co/qniCOCFYyA

He’s terrible, all right. But we do appreciate his honesty here, even if it was unintentional.
