Election reform advocate refutes McConnell’s talking points

 

Daniel Weiner, deputy director of the Brennan Center Election Reform Program, says the election reform bill approved by the House and is awaiting approval by the Senate would help voters from all political parties, refuting Sen. Mitch McConnell's claim that the legislation is a partisan power play.

  1. Moscow Mitch is only OK with Republican legislatures ramming through their anti-voting laws along party lines .

    1. **this Republican party is morally bankrupt,,,, and all the clear thinking patriotic Americans,,, are leaving this Republican party in the dust!!!!**

    2. @R Torres Question: What bill, on any issue, will the Republicans support, besides tax cut for the rich??? What issue will they say yes??? Ooh Ooh I know the answer….NOT ONE!!! And their voter suppression effort is going to backfire big time…watch and see.

    3. So did you see this in the national news: Here we go again folks. When Republicans are screaming for all of these recounts in states that Dump lost, we have yet another example of who was actually committing the voter fraud, another Republican. In today’s news it was reported that Leslie McCrae Dowless Jr. from North Carolina worked in 2017-2018 for Republican candidate Mark Harris on his campaign. He was caught after Mark Harris’s win the election, to have filled out hundreds of absentee ballots in the rural North Carolina election. Dowless has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of obstruction of justice, conspiracy to commit obstruction of justice and possession of absentee ballots. Additional he was collecting social security benefits while he worked on the campaign, earning around $135,000 in 2017 and 2018. I don’t know about you, but I have yet to see any Democrat arrested or charged with voter fraud since Dump campaigned and was elected, especially not at this level.

    4. @Dann Marceau CNN AND DEMOCRATS ARE RIGHT! ASKING FOR VOTER ID IS *RACIST* BECAUSE PEOPLE OF COLOR GENERALLY DON’T HAVE THE MONEY AND MEANS TO OBTAIN VALID ID

  2. Mitch McConnell did the same thing to president Obama, the Democrats need to take the fights to him.

    1. All democrats serve the Antichrist who plays with preschoolers under the tinfoil sheets at the border

  3. Joe Manchin is a sellout, if Mitch McConnell flexing his muscles is because of Joe Manchin.

    1. @biekgiek – I linked it but YouTube ain’t allowing it. Sorry. If you have Twitter it’s on their page.

  4. Republicans lost the house, senate, and presidency. The American people are waking up to the fascist GQP

    5. @Bobby Brown Like this one Bobby, that was in the national news today. Here we go again folks.

    1. @Pedro Noa he is only grifting his supporters so he can hide money in property in Florida because they won’t be able to seize it when he claims bankruptcy after all his accounts are seized.

    2. 75 million troglodytes voted for a genocidal sweet potato traitor. We’re screwed.

    3. @Christians Stormed our Capitol LISTEN, CNN & DEMOCRATS ARE RIGHT! ASKING FOR VOTER ID IS RACIST BECAUSE PEOPLE OF COLOR GENERALLY DON’T HAVE THE MONEY AND MEANS TO OBTAIN VALID ID !

    1. @Katie F there have been several REAL AUDITS done before Cyber Ninja, NO fraud wa found.

  5. McConnell call this bill a Democrat power grab is almost comical. The very man that has been blocking everything democrats attempt to pass for the sake of staying in power. Ridiculous!

    1. Ummm …. Nobody like Mitch, from either voter base … dude neeeds to go … like racist Biden needed to go … but the left voted him in over the 1st female president candidate , the 1st Asian president, and/or the 1st openly gay veteran president….. so much for the WOKE community, you voted in a racist, white privileged, old fart!

  6. “…to tilt every election in America in their favor.” Indeed, non partisan district boundaries, as opposed to Republican partisan gerrymandering, would show that more Americans vote for Democrats than vote for Republicans. This provision seeks to end the Republican tilt that skews the people’s choices.

    1. I hope this year brings happiness and prosperity and love to all american and to the worldwide. I’m Steve Armstrong by name. If I may ask where are you from?

  7. mitch : the blues want to tip elections in their favor , by making sure every vote is counted and that the majority vote MEANS something because we have tilted elections in the favor of reds because we cant win a fair election … so unfair for them to make it fair because we reds need to cheat and lie to get all the extra power we are suppose to have because doG says so ……………………..

    1. @Lex Ruptor Democrats don’t have 10 Republican votes in Senate to pass H.R.1, therefore they must eliminate the filibuster.

    2. @VanGiai Do Exactly! Idk what will change Manchin and Sinema mind because McConnell has said he’s doing nothing period so what bipartisan is he waiting for?

    3. That’s because there trying to cheat their way to a win and take power and it’s up to everyone including Republican supporters to vote for what’s right and fair not cheat to win !!!!!

    4. @VanGiai Do Just how are they trying to end the filibuster…..it may happen if shitpublicans don’t stop being the party of obstruction

  8. Schmer put it on the floor. Mitch McConnell needs to be investigated along with his wife when in office. Don’t let them get away with IT.

  9. Republicans should ask themselves why it would be some sort of “Power Grab” when it’s a bill to allow as many Americans to vote as possible….

    1. @Ignacio Couce you are correct. However this is not only about voter ID. Explain away how republican legislators can now legally overturn legally casted votes just because their people don’t win? Nobody’s talking about that part. Who gives a flying fig about voter ID when you vote unanimously anyways.

    2. @Ignacio Couce States do offer that type of rule with the ID, but sometimes it just makes things less or more fair by allowing different types of IDs to count and others to not count.

      When I got my mail-in ballot for the 2020 election, I had to first upload a pic of my license that matched the ID on file, then I had to do a signature test by signing a piece of blank paper and uploading a pic of it.

      Then, like 3-4 weeks before the general election, I got my ballot in the mail and once I filled it out and packed it back up completely I could drop it off almost anywhere or have someone do it for me (and not just because I get mail-in ballots due to being disabled), so idk why everyone makes such a big deal about this like fake fraud to get loads of fake ballots because you do go through somewhat of a identity check, but it’s whilst you’re signing up to receive the ballot, not actually drop it off.

      I do, very much, prefer easy to vote, extremely difficult to cheat. Which is why I get so aggravated when these politicians just keep saying the 2020 election was some kind of terrible sh*t-show!

      The only sh*t-show part of it was how the Republicans have all acted.

      The 2020 election was one of the most secure elections in modern history. Even men that got their job from Trump said that. To be able to pull off one of the most secure elections ever, that had the biggest turnout ever, during a pandemic….

      I think we should go with at least most of the stuff that we did during that election, rather than start up hundreds of bill that suppress voters throughout 48 states.

    3. @Ignacio Couce Democrats will compromise on the voter ID requirement. They will. But they will want something in exchange such as a guaranteed number of polling stations for every 5 or 10,000 voters so people don’t have to stand in line for hours just to vote. Democrats should call their bluff, and say OK you got your voter IDs so long as they are made free for everyone.

    4. @Ignacio Couce this MUCH MORE about GETTING MONEY OUT OF POLITICS and ENDING LEGALIZED BRIBERY that lets the corporations and billionaire ruling elites control BUY AND CONTROL OUR GOVERNMENT

  10. Someone ought to tell McConnell that even with these changes, their party can still get a winning amount of votes by creating legislation that the voters actually want. Although I feel like he already knows that

    1. @Ignacio Couce …every US state has voter ID requirements. Conservatives are playing political theater.

    2. @Ignacio Couce This is NOT about Voter ID, you dimwit. Pay Attention, read between the Thin Red Lines and READ about the rest of the CANCERvative’s Voter Laws they are trying to pass, underneath the ID part.
      As I said, this is NOT about an ID.

    3. Don’t anyone forget what this man and others have done they have taken your basic rights away voting from who you choose NOW THEY ARE CHOOSING FOR YOU !!!!

    4. @Ignacio Couce do realize in Republican states many accept gun licences as voter is but will not accept military or state university id’s?

    5. @Michael Reid LISTEN, CNN & DEMOCRATS ARE RIGHT! ASKING FOR VOTER ID IS *RACIST* BECAUSE PEOPLE OF COLOR GENERALLY DON’T HAVE THE MONEY AND MEANS TO OBTAIN VALID ID !!

  11. Any time Republicans utter “Radical Socialist agenda”, Democrats should counter with “GOP fascist agenda.” And, unlike Republicans, Dems would be right!

    1. Did you vote for Joe Biden? Or at the very least, would you gave if you could’ve voted?

    2. **all the real Patriots,, are leaving this Republican party…. COME JOIN US AND SAVE OUR DEMOCRACY!!!!**

  12. is there anything that republicans hate more than americans voting?

    republicans hate democracy.

  13. What McConnell is actually admitting is that when the field is level and fair, the GOP will lose. They MUST cheat in order to win. Think about that.

    Vote, America. VOTE.

  14. If GOP loses gerrymandering…they lose about 70% of all political seats in the country…City, State, and National. GOP can’t win if they can’t cheat.
