It was a show vote for the ages.

Even the Washington Post headline acknowledged what it was really all about:

“Seeking to spark an uprising, Democrats put abortion on Senate floor”


Vice President Kamala Harris made a grand entrance to preside over the vote and dramatically cast her tie-breaking vote that is rarely needed.

But the vote in favor of expanding abortion rights until the moment of birth came up well short of a tie.

Once again, Kamala wasn’t needed.

The measure failed on a 51-49 vote, because 60 votes were required to pass.

The sole Democrat to abandon ship was U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, the only one of them to honestly acknowledge this wasn’t about codifying Roe v. Wade into law as his party would have us believe. 

Colorado’s Democrat U.S. Senators have been fanning the flames of fear that has abortion rights activists protesting at the homes of U.S. Supreme Court justices like common street thugs. 

They are desperate to motivate their far left progressive base and get working class America’s attention off the fact that Democrat-driven inflation would drive them into the poor house, if they could only afford the gas to get there.

The leak of a Supreme Court decision that would send abortion rights to individual states to decide, which has yet to even be voted on by the court, was just the pretend crisis Democrats needed. 

It’s unlikely their ploy worked. 

That Democrats want to give every transgender, nonbinary, and gender-expansive person who was assigned female or intersex at birth the radical right of abortion-on-demand, through all nine months of pregnancy until the moment before a baby is born, has only proven their extremism.  

This may motivate the Too-Far-Gone-Left, but regular folks will still be trying to keep a roof over their heads, gas in the tank, and food in the mouths of their children.
