    Feingold is absolutely correct.

  2. If you can’t vote or can vote for someone who doesn’t represent you because of gerrymandering, then you don’t live in a REAL democracy! Hmm?

    When have Republicans ever been bipartisan…do the right thing democrats f them

  4. IT’S TIME FOR BIDEN TO FILL THE SUPREME COURT

      And make it so easy to vote in all 50 states, that the republicans Never win again with their current “agenda?” oh I forgot, they don’t have an agenda. only T***p (draft dodging donald)

    • @hans pijpers No, they do have an agenda. It’s oppressing minorities, of course!

    • Lesley Edgley | March 26, 2021 at 5:16 PM | Reply

      @Meghan And fear. Of “others.” Which leads to events like 1/6.

  5. Let the public VOTE ON HR 1

    • ChickenManiac 123 | March 26, 2021 at 3:06 AM | Reply

      Or just let the massively popular legislation pass the senate which would take less effort and waste less money. You think Republicans would be willing to put voter suppression up to the people they’re trying to suppress?

  6. Send them to the SCOTUS and get rulings on their constitutionality.

    • Right SCOTUS and the constitution. The same ones who can make any decision they want & NOT have to explain it. You mean that tenured seat that feels it is alright to deny the voters an examined election and a validated result?

    • @P C Get over it. That was 21 years ago now.

    Exactly.

  8. Voting rights is the principal foundation of democracy, because otherwise elections are not representative. If a group is trying to change it, then that means they have ill motives.

  9. Mitch McConnell isnt threatening to do anything he hasn’t already done. Democrats are in charge, push HR1 through

    Just play hardball and you will arrive in the 21st century . Democracy has to show strength and the ability of transformation .

  11. Rampage Phoenix | March 26, 2021 at 1:39 AM | Reply

    Is it by chance too late to nuke the filibuster?
    Can HR1 do anything at this point??

    As it stands, Republicans F-ed up big time with this; So much so, that payback from Democrats is inevitable.

  12. Remember when McCain Feingold passed, and everyone thought it would solve our campaign finance problems…by doubling the amount of money ONLY rich people could give.

    Boycott anything Georgia, let their peaches rot and anything else that supports them.

    Political solutions are impossible when the Senate filibusters EVERYTHING.
    How about a 55% population-based cloture rule?
    Turns out the Dems represent 55% of the voters.
    Presto chango. No more filibuster.
    #StopTheBlockheads

  15. If people need help getting ID, help them get ID’s. You don’t have to destroy election integrity to save democracy. Smell’s fishy.

    BIDEN SHOULD JUST SAY #UC# IT AND DO WHAT HE WANTS AN CHANGE WHAT EVER HE WANTS TO DO.

  17. Joe can’t get his way, let’s just change the rules 😉

  18. Feingold, I liked you when I lived in Wisconsin. Are you going to run against Ron Johnson?
