It’s widely assumed that Kamala Harris will run as the Democrat nominee in 2024.
But Joe Biden is doing Kamala Harris no favors on that front.
That’s because Joe Biden gave Kamala Harris this new job that is bad news for her future.
Joe Biden already dropped one thankless task in Kamala Harris’s lap when Biden named Harris as the administration official in charge of the border crisis.
Now Biden just added another doomed cause to Harris’s portfolio.
At a speech in Oklahoma, Biden declared that Harris was now in charge of the Democrats’ push to pass what Republicans call the “Corrupt Politicians Act.”
“Every American has a right to have their voice heard at the ballot box, and no American should be kept from voting early, voting by mail, or voting at all. Our democracy is strongest when everyone participates, and it is weaker when people are left out,” Harris declared in a statement following Biden’s speech.
“The work ahead of us is to make voting accessible to all American voters, and to make sure every vote is counted through a free, fair, and transparent process,” Harris added. “This is the work of democracy.”
This legislation would give felons like murderers and rapists the right to vote the second they walk out of prison, mandate universal mail-in ballots in every state in America as well as ballot harvesting in all 50 states.
The bill also guts the ability of states to enforce voter ID laws.
Chuck Schumer promised to bring up the legislation for a vote the week of June 21 despite the fact the bill will fail as Republicans will filibuster a bill they argue will rig elections in the Democrats’ favor.
The only chance to pass the bill is by triggering the nuclear option and eliminating the filibuster.
But Democrats Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin of Arizona and West Virginia stated their opposition to eliminating the legislative filibuster, driving the final nail in the coffin to Biden’s legislative agenda.
In the Oklahoma speech Joe Biden called out Sinema and Manchin falsely claiming that they vote with Republicans more than Democrats.
“I hear all of the folks on TV saying why doesn’t Biden get this done? Well, because Biden only has the majority of effectively four votes in the House and a tie in the Senate. With two members of the Senate who vote more with my Republican friends,” Biden exclaimed.
This is a lie.
According to the website FiveThirtyEight.com, Manchin and Sinema voted with Joe Biden 100 percent of the time in 2021.
Biden’s attack on Sinema and Manchin as well as putting Harris in charge of voting rights holds huge potential for backfiring.
In February, Harris did in an interview with a local West Virginia affiliate when Congress debated Biden’s proposed “blue state bailout bill.”
At the time, Manchin was not yet clear if he would support the bill and Manchin viewed Harris’s interview on his home turf as a brushback pitch from the White House.
“I couldn’t believe it. No one called me,” Manchin said in response.
Ever since Biden put Harris in charge at the border, Harris’s aides worked their contacts in the friendly media to make it clear Harris actually isn’t in charge of solving the border crisis.
Critics argue Harris has no intention of stopping the flow of illegal aliens into America so her team wants to distance her from the stench of this failure ahead of her expected 2024 presidential run.
Likewise, Joe Biden put Harris in the no-win situation of heading the doomed-to-fail push to pass voting legislation setting Harris up to take all the blame from the party’s activist base when Congress fails to pass a bill that would cement a permanent Democrat majority.
