Dems’ infrastructure package may now include “election infrastructure”

A top Democrat just revealed one of her party’s plans to get a radical piece of legislation through Congress.

Breitbart reports Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) as revealing that the Democrats might look to include “election infrastructure” in an infrastructure package that would be able to bypass the Senate filibuster. 

“Put election infrastructure in there”

Klobuchar let the idea slip during a recent interview on CNN.

“Election infrastructure could be in the Democratic package,” Klobuchar said. “And that’s part of the solution.”

To put this into context, Klobuchar said this as she was speaking out against the election integrity measures that have been passed by several Republican states, most notably, Georgia. Congressional Democrats argue that these bills amount to voter suppression, and, accordingly, they are trying to counter these bills with their own legislation, namely, the “For the People Act.”

Considering the radical nature of this measure, the Democrats don’t really have the support needed to get it through Congress. So, Klobuchar floated the idea of including it in an infrastructure deal.

“What you can do is put election infrastructure in there,” Klobuchar said. “You could tie it to certain things as incentives for states to do same-day registration, to do the mail-in balloting.”

She added, though, that it would be “no substitute for putting the basic federal rights in place [through legitimate legislation].”

The “trojan horse”

It is because of ideas like this one that the partisan infrastructure bill being talked about has been labeled by Republicans a “trojan horse” bill. The Democrats have been looking to include all kinds of wishlist-type items in the bill, including voting measures and even an amnesty one.

The key is that the infrastructure bill is a budgetary one, so the Democrats can pass it using the reconciliation process. This, essentially, eliminated the Senate filibuster, lowering the requisite number of votes needed to pass a piece of legislation through the Senate to 51, which is the exact number of votes that the Democrats have.

At the moment, Democrats are leaving it up to the Senate parliamentarian to determine what can and cannot be included in the infrastructure proposal. The Senate parliamentarian has yet to make that determination.

Even if the Senate parliamentarian rules that such things as voting rights and amnesty can be included in the infrastructure package, whether or not that package will make it through will depend on the votes of a number of centrist Democrats. Some of these Democrats have suggested that they would not go along with this idea, but, of course, anything can happen.
