Schumer lets Senate Dems know they’ll “debate and consider changes to Senate rules on or before January 17, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, to protect the foundation of our democracy: free and fair elections.”
New — Schumer announces plan to hold vote to change filibuster rules to advance bill overhauling election laws. Wants vote before MLK day on Jan. 17. Talks continue in Senate but Manchin and Sinema are opposed to changing rules along party lines — known as the “nuclear option.” pic.twitter.com/9yp0qO9O7x

Good. If Manchin and Sinema (and possibly others) value the filibuster over democracy itself, let that position be on the record. Republicans have already made their choice, and time is growing short.
