As Twitchy reported earlier, all but one Democratic senator — Joe Manchin — voted Wednesday for the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would have allowed abortion without restrictions up until childbirth and also would have rendered null and void states’ abortion laws. As Manchin explained, the act went beyond codifying Roe v. Wade.

The Associated Press, which is having a banner day, reported that the Senate Democrats’ bill to codify Roe v. Wade was blocked by a GOP-led filibuster.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren must have read that tweet, because she was up in arms after the vote to nuke the filibuster:

About that tweet about the GOP filibustering the Democrats’ bill:

Someone tell Warren that the majority voted against the bill, so it wasn’t “the minority” getting its way. President Joe Biden doesn’t get it either … we remember him saying that “in America, the majority should rule in the United States Senate” when the attempt to nuke the filibuster failed by a vote of 52-48.
