‘I will not yield,’ Biden says as voting rights battle heats up

Al Jazeera, 12 Jan 2022
United States President Joe Biden has said he backs an effort to change Senate rules in order to pass voting rights legislation, declaring that the move would be aimed at protecting the “heart and soul” of the country’s democracy.
In a speech in Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday, Biden said he had been having quiet conversations with US senators for months over the two bills up for debate, which have stalled because they do not have enough Republican votes to move them past the filibuster.
