Add voting rights to the long list of worthy goals killed by the filibuster

For the third time this year, Senate Republicans last week filibustered legislation that would have protected voting rights from GOP efforts around the country to restrict them. Democrats unanimously supported it this time, after the measure was scaled back to satisfy moderates. Yet the minority party was able to thwart the will of the Senate majority — not to mention the majority of the country — on an issue more critical than ever after former President Donald Trump’s unprecedented attempt to overturn last year’s election results.
