Many Senate Democrats are preparing for a key moment they believe will help make their case to gut the filibuster once and for all: when Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Republican colleagues block a major voting rights bill they say is critical to beat back restrictions imposed in GOP-led states across the country.
Mitch McConnell and his GOP Senate majority repeatedly prevented filibusters whenever it suited their goals (right-wing Supreme Court confirmations, tax cuts for the rich, etc). Democrats MUST do the same now to protect Americans’ constitutional right to vote!#HR1ForThePeopleAct

Mitch McConnell summarily used the Senate's powers to remove President Obama's right to appoint Judges including a Supreme Court justice while jamming a mid-election nominee with no record on the court and he's accusing Democrats of "scorched earth" now that he's in the minority?
