NUCLEAR "FALLOUT" FROM THE NUCLEAR OPTION EXCEPTION TO THE FILIBUSTER

The Voting Rights Act scheduled for a vote on the Senate floor, but without a "carve out" of the filibuster (also known as the "nuclear option") the necessary 60 votes to get the bill onto the floor are missing. Democrat-sponsors of the Act have been pushing for a "nuclear option" for weeks. But should they be careful about those things that the wish for? Featuring Senator Ted Cruz (R. Tx), Senate majority speaker Chuck Schumer ( D. NY), Rep. Mondaire Jones (D. NY) Molly Reynolds, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institute, and Sen. Shelly Moore Capito (R. WV).
