WV: Sen. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is Putting Heat on Sen. Manchin
Time is of the essence!
I’m sure you have heard the news. Major gun control has passed in the U.S. House of Representatives.
And now, the Senate plans to take up major gun rights restrictions next week.
As we have told you before, your Senator Joe Manchin is the key to stopping all gun control!
Here’s why. The leader of the U.S. Senate, Chuck Schumer (D-NY), is putting the squeeze on all of his fellow Democrat Senators.
It’s all over the news. Schumer wants to end the filibuster.
But he’s particularly pressuring Sen. Manchin right now.
Schumer wants Manchin to cave … to support nixing the filibuster … and to pass gun control with 51 votes.
We have the votes to STOP GUN CONTROL if we keep the filibuster — as long as, the Senate has to jump over the 60-vote threshold.
But we don’t have the votes to win without the filibuster (relying on a simple majority vote).
Right now, there are backroom discussions about whether to keep the filibuster or not.
So please call Joe Manchin at 202-224-3954 and urge him to NOT BACK DOWN ONE BIT on the filibuster.
Tell him NO COMPROMISES.
NO LIMITATIONS on the filibuster.
And NO DEALS with Chuck Schumer!
Please call 202-224-3954 and then use our legislative action system to send Sen. Manchin a pre-written letter.
