  1. The way forward for the US is to get everybody on board. When everybody can vote, we shall see what the American people truly stand for.

    1. @Chris ONeill i just looked into the march and it doesn’t mention anything about how US citizens are banned from voting… and how this march will show that US citizens are currently being banned from voting. Feel free to educate us.. because obviously we are clueless.

    2. @Chris ONeill so.. are you saying that people are going to march in atlanta so these two nuckleheads, or other like them, can vote?

    1. Exactly, doing what’s right every now and then does not mean you are to be trusted. At least, I would like to hear their well-thought out reasoning for not voting for it.

    2. Because they’re racist and autocratic too. They just don’t like the system they benefit from being threatened or overthrown

    3. Both of them voted for TFG agenda 90%+ of the time. They are not dissenters, not pro-Constitution/democracy.

  2. That means that Cheney & Kinzinger do not support voter rights. This is why I do not throw them any roses. They are not pro-democracy. They are anti-trump. Two different things.

    1. @Joni Beehive
      Please check your profile discussion. Guy North thinks you’re a russian troll. Report him and remove it.

    2. @Equality For All
      You know the most ironic thing of all, I believe, is that both of them will not be re-elected as (R’s) without Democrats and independents votes…
      Duh-Publicans indeed.

    3. @Equality For All
      Thanks for the advice… I report regularly but mostly don’t respond directly or give the troll farm engagement. If we all of sound, sane mind do that- they’ll cease to benefit from loathing income generation..

    4. @Bryan you know nothing about what’s up. I’m not for either party cause they both lie to hold power. And that will never change

    5. You didn’t know that you can agree with someone on one point and disagree with them on another? Well, now you do.

  3. Is anyone going to ask Kinzinger and Cheney why they didn’t vote for this? Just because you side with what’s right once in a while, you don’t get immunity for opposing democracy.

    1. This 212 Republican votes are deplorable and disrespecting the Constitution !
      Where are the Really True Americans who care about their country!

    2. Yup. They’ve both been working so hard to politically capitalise on the one single point of dissension they have with the party as a whole. It doesn’t make them otherwise honest and wholesome.

    3. Both of them voted for TFG agenda 90%+ of the time. They are not dissenters, not pro-Constitution/democracy.

    4. Because they’re trying to weasel their way back in so they can run for president… I was telling people long time ago not to trust kinzinger or Cheney… There wolves in sheep’s clothing.

  4. A giant step forward for a diverse America.
    A giant step backwards for republicans who long for the days of Jim Crow.

  5. Expose, then oppose. Let the stench of the republicans foul the streams of consciousness emanating from the far gone right.

  6. You know what? You’re not going to know this — possibly, if you really did it right — for months or for years. Because these ballots are all going to be lost, they’re all going to be gone,” Trump said,

    1. In a year and 2 months Democrats are going to lose the House. Lord. Democracy is at stake, and all they can think to do about it is hand out lots of free stuff.

    2. The US Senate needs to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act! Chuck Schumer must use any means necessary!

    3. Dems shouldn’t pussyfoot around and tinker with carving out exceptions for the filibuster. It’s time to get rid of it completely. It’s out of date, unjust, and undemocratic when it gives a minority the power to overturn the wishes of the majority. Republican Senators represent significantly less people than Dem Senators, and are deliberately trying to stop equality for all. The Electoral College and the filibuster have no place in the 21st century. Americans need to wake up, and stop being a joke to real democracies.

  7. MANCHIN AND SINEMA ARE SAFE…THEY’RE BOTH FROM RED STATES WHO WANT THEM TO VOTE AGAINST THIS….

  8. Our democracy will not be safe from racist voter suppression until we enact legislation to ensure that Democrats have permanent control of our government.

    1. You wouldn’t something that is unconstitutional passed would you? This violates the 10th amendment of our constitution.

  9. Remember Bernie Sanders smearing Black voters who rejected him as ” the old Confederacy ” ? I do . Remember Bernie Sanders sending his thugs to harass and scream at John Lewis ? I do . What I don’t get is WHY IS RACIST BERNIE SANDERS GIVEN A FREE PASS ?????

  10. I HAD A DREAM.
    JOHN LEWIS CAME TO ME IN A DREAM.
    HE SAID:
    ONE VOTE – ONE INK STAINED THUMB.

  11. This wall is clearly unconstitutional. It takes the power away from the stage to establish their own building policy, procedure and regulations.
