It’s a holiday weekend in the Senate and as you may know, holiday weekends are when all the heavy action hits on Capitol Hill. So cancel your ski trip, chase your Soylent with some addies, and turn up the volume on this episode of SSG.
OR WILL THE VOTING RIGHTS FIGHT TURN IT ALL AROUND?
Here’s what’s at stake…
Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who basically spent all of 2021 as Mitch McConnell’s prison b*tch, is sacking-up big time to pass a giant voting rights bill and also eliminate the Senate filibuster. This is due to the fact that:
- Many Republican governors are on the Democrats’ naughty list for passing questionable election reforms in 2021;
- Democrats believe these Republicans are engaging in voter suppression; but
- There aren’t 60 votes in the Senate to pass a federal election reform bill to stop them; so…
- In order to preserve minority rights in elections, it is very important to eliminate them in Congress (the filibuster).
IDK, fam. We report, you decide.
But let’s not lose the thread. This is a big move for Sen. Schumer. Any time a Majority Leader takes a big swing using arcane parliamentary tactics, we applaud. It’s part of getting your wings.
OBVIOUSLY, THERE ARE HUGE IMPLICATIONS HERE FOR YOUR BETTING STRATEGY
Everyone knows that neither voting rights nor filibuster reform will pass the Senate this weekend. BTW, bank those bets.
But this act of political theater also tells a lot about how to bet on these items too:
- The future of Build Back Better (is back or still dead)?
- Who will control the Senate in 2022
- Whether Joe Biden has just given up on the whole bipartisan thing
Yes, fam, this is a rich moment for your gambling degeneracy. And we’ve got one of the all-time greats on the show to guide us. YES….
