Why Does Chuck Schumer Always Get A Pass?

I know there is a rule here not to bash Democrats and there are a lot Schumer fans here but c'mon man.

I'm talking about S1 failing to pass the Senate. It was called S1 because it was the very first bill written because it was so important.

I completely understand the Manchin Sinema problem, so what? The GQP has passed horrible voter/election laws throughout the states that will hurt Democrats tremendously. Here is my question to Mr. Schumer, why not carve up S1 into pieces and get things passed that Manchin and Sinema agree on? WTF Chuck, the GQP has passed laws forbidding people to give voters standing in line for hours food and drink. You mean that Manchin and Sinema would have voted against giving people food and drink waiting to vote? Now, how many more bills could have been written and voted on to at least get a part of S1 passed?

Alert on me Schumer fans because he missed the boat IMO, he had an alternative to simply blaming Manchin and Sinema.

Yeah I know, get out the vote anyway even if I have to stand in line for 6 hours and my daughter can't bring me a bottle of water.

1. Probably because voters can bring their own food and drink

If the GQP has banned food and drink outright, congress would have done something. However, breaking up bills is a good idea on other areas.

2. S1 failed because there weren't 50 Democrats willing to override the Republican filibuster blocking

the bill.

It isn't question of something Manchin and Sinema a will "agree on" it is a question of what they are willing to carve out an exception to the filibuster for, and the answer to that seems to be "only raising the debt ceiling".
