The US president Joe Biden has revealed his dissatisfaction with legislation laws that demand a majority vote of 60% before the passing of a lot of legislation in the house of Senate.
His clamour is coming amidst his move to pass voting reforms.
The upper chamber is occupied with both Democrats and Republicans having an equal number of seats and the chances of Biden’s election reform bill carting about 60% is not very likely.
In addition, evident hesitation on the side of two senators from Biden’s party is impeding his plan to manage a majority vote amid the likeliness that Republican senators would not vote for passage of the ill.
The bills Biden is moving for are the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement.
The Freedom to Vote Act is meant to make the United States follow a standardised voting rule that applies equally to all states in the country. This would be contrasting the present voting rules that are unique to the administration of each state.
The John Lewis Act bill is aimed at ensuring that state governments request permission before they observed changes to election protocols.
According to BBC News analysts have conjectured and estimated that although Biden stands little chance of stirring a change in legislation rules, there is no denying the dependency these bills could cause state governments.
Joe Biden, in his own words, calls for the change in legislation rules iso that the democracy of the US is not controlled by a minority group that does not deem bills fit because they opposed party goals.
The president further stated – as he gave his speech in Georgia – that he had been having muffled discussions with members of Congress in the high chamber and that was not bringing the speedy result required.
