Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Unsure on Voting Rights Bill After Sinema Opposes Filibuster Reform” – below is their description.

President Joe Biden cast doubt Thursday on his push for voting-rights legislation shortly after a key Senate Democrat expressed her opposition to the plan, a significant setback for the party’s defense of narrow congressional majorities in the November elections.

After meeting privately with Senate Democrats, Biden said while he hoped lawmakers would advance the measure, “the honest-to-God answer is: I don’t know if we can get this done.”

The almost certain defeat is the latest disappointment for a president battling a relentless pandemic and soaring inflation and struggling to push a sweeping tax and spending plan through Congress. And on the foreign policy front, talks with Russia to avert an invasion of Ukraine have failed to make progress.
