Background check proposal killed by Senate

Posted by admin     Category: Politics

The Senate on Wednesday did not advance a bipartisan background check proposal that the Democrats were pushing for.

The background check legislation, pushed by Democrat Joe Manchin III of West Virginia and Republican Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania, received only 54 votes, 6 short of the 60 needed to clear a threatened filibuster. Prior to the vote, President had personally lobbied on-the-fence senators. But those efforts failed.

Gee Mr President, we thought you that you said that nearly 90% of the country wanted this….wrong again.
