Senate to vote on horrible elections bill next week, but will it pass?

Chucky Schmucky Schumer has announced today that he’s scheduling a Senate vote next week on the horrible elections bill that passed the House earlier this year. The bill would enable the federal government to steal control of our elections from the states and undo all the election reforms that have been passed around the country:

POLITICO – In a “Dear Colleague” letter Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he will take procedural steps Monday that will set up a Wednesday vote on the bill, which he wrote will “give fair access to our democracy to all Americans.”

The legislation is the byproduct of months of negotiation between Schumer, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and seven Democratic senators.

It’s hilarious to me that people keep telling Manchin to become a Republican. He is FOR this radical elections bill and it proves what I’ve been saying, that he would be an absolute disaster as a Republican. He would be the worst of the RINOs if he became a Republican.

But the question remains, will this horrendous elections bill pass the Senate? According to Politico, it doesn’t stand a chance without Republican support:

But the bill has no GOP support, despite outreach from Manchin to Republican senators, making final passage impossible without a change to Senate rules. Manchin and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) have adamantly insisted that they will not scrap the legislative filibuster, despite calls to do so from progressives.

This is not a reconciliation bill and therefore it goes through the normal process and needs to get past the filibuster to pass. Thus, the scheduled vote by Schumer is just for show.
