Biden: GOP Efforts A ‘Truly Unprecedented Assault On Our Democracy’
Biden highlighted the “right to vote” in one part of his speech, and attacked GOP election integrity efforts as trying “to replace nonpartisan election administrators and to intimidate those charged with tallying and reporting the election results.”
Biden insisted that this was a “truly unprecedented assault on our democracy.”
After urging Congress to take action, Biden then brought up “all the folks on TV” who he keep asking questions about why he hasn’t gotten “this done.”
Biden seemed to be pointing at two Democrat senators with a reputation for bipartisanship, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema.
Both Manchin and Sinema supporting keeping the filibuster.
Biden says he has “two members of the Senate who vote more with my Republican friends,” he says, presumably referring to Manchin and Sinema (though they vote far more with Democrats)
