    Ask yourself why every republican voted 🗳 against voting RIGHTS protections.

    • @Daniel Palma
      Well I guess that settles it, you being the center of the Universe and all. If you didn’t vote illegally I guess no one did huh? you simple minded POS

      @John Barrett You wanna know why? Because even a newborn baby can see what’s going on in this country. Liberty for (ALL)! They cry! Did you really think that you could oppress We The People! We don’t want to go back there, but you do and we know why! You are out numbered! See if something is not yours then you will lose it and that’s a promise! If it is yours then no one can take it from you! Everytime we look back we stumble! Look forward you can really see where we are going!👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀

    • miller  yoyou need to show ID to get a job, buy booze, buy cigarettes, get into federal buildings, get vehicle registration, health insurance, to even register to vote, etc. You have to show proof of citizenship to get SS, a job, drivers license, etc. But none to actually vote, why is that? It’s not oppressing anyone, just making sure that those allowed to vote are the only ones voting. “The peoples act” according to politicians debating live on c span, will allow mass mail in with no proof of who actually sent it in, never have to show ID, pretty much anyone can vote no matter citizen status, ballot harvesting, just to name a few. Feferal tax dollars funding campaigns.Now let me put it into perspect for you, let’s say next election, your tax dollars had to fund trump if he runs again because funds have to be divided evenly, 6 million non citizens put trump ahead by 1 million votes, you get 20 million mail in ballots with 19 million in favor of trump, Republicans ballot harvest 15 million votes and puts him on top again. Are you ok with that? These new regs loosen the process for both sides, not strengthen them to go against everything they claimed trump did last year, would you be making the same claims if the outcome is different next time because of these new regs?? I dont believe you would be very happy. All for for making things better for the future as long as it IS for the good of the AMERICAN PEOPLE..✌

      From what I see in this comment it’s talking mostly about transparency and fairness. I haven’t met a politician yet that is totally transparent or totally fair. This country has a very long history of trickery and has a lot of politicians that are there for self interest only. Money and Power is the name of their game. However in the spirit of fairness I listen to both parties and I say that they are both incapable of keeping up with the needs of the American people. We are talking in the vicinity of the 17th and 19th amendments of the Constitution. Mail in or absentee voting makes it fair for long distance Americans to vote as well as US soldiers overseas. People are voting more than ever now and we have the mid terms coming up. Put together teams to go out and legitimately check records of the US citizens. If you have to go overseas to check for them so be it. Go state to state. Put some work in. Voting rights are just what they are rights. If we put more time into voting security instead of vacationing every other week I believe we would be able to accept the outcomes of our elections. It’s really not fair for anybody to have to fund someones campaign that I don’t support but instead of changing the framework itself, lets improve what’s inside the framework. The ACA is the perfect example of a set of principles (framework) that was repealed and not replaced. Deception. I was upset being in the US military and witnessing George W. Bush receiving some BS cities against All Gore but I had to accept it and went on to do my part in the way I vote.🤓

  3. On the other hand, the GOP would like to subvert the people.

    The GOP had their chance, lets not forget all the voting reform bills that died on Moscow Mitches desk during the last administration.

      @TJ Roelsma I think it was the party of the rich , but has since the bailouts in 08, no , now only thing uniting is racism and mysogeny

    • And three Dem bills for security checks on *all* voting machines were all shot down by the Senate GOP. I wonder why they wouldn’t want security checks on voting machines. I wonder why Mitch was polling at 13% just months before he won in a landslide. Notice the GOP traitors that touted trump’s baseless fraud claims never mentioned ES&S machines that actually DO have Chinese parts (Ivanka’s?). 🤔

      Moscow Mitch McConnell is a greater risk for our democracy, he used to be a sympathizer of a democratic Republic but since Trump appeared as the Republican for a white Authoritarian Republic under the Q-Anon Republicans for Trump, the party changed views, he alone is impeding the continuance of Democracy itself.

    • You mean the election security bills Mitch blocked. Interesting thing about that is he received campaign donations from Dominion Voting Systems. Amy Klobachur, Mark Pocan, Ron Wyden, and Elizabeth Warren have all said Dominion Voting Systems threaten the integrity of our elections because of vote switching issues.

  6. I’m glad you’re giving these two new senators some air time. They need good publicity.

      You believe that? You’re a fool! No matter how terrible the policies, no matter how far they run this county into the ground you will never see a Republican win another election and it won’t be because we didn’t vote for them. You people are going to get exactly what You’re asking for and I can’t wait to watch you suffer when you get it. The Democrats are not who you think they are. The government is not who you think it is. There are no Republicans or Democrats just you and I against them. you will see one day and you’ll feel like a total fool but until then good luck.

      Without protected voting rights the american people will have no voice in government, state or federal. That has veen the problem for the last 35 to 40 years. We have been controlled by
      Corporate interests on both sides of the aisle. Now is the time to take a step back from dictatorship. This is a FDR moment in our history. He staved off facism at home by supporting labor rights, banking regulations,
      Taxing the wealthy and social programs like social security. Biden understands his moment in history. He sees the anger and the wealth disparity and will not step back from helping the working class. It is only way to re-election and avoiding a dictatorship which will help no one but the rich in the short run. Electing progressive and moderate democrats will save the day just as it did in the 1930s.

      @ran away Ive call it “removing an obstruction that prevents the American people from progress”….and if one party needs to disappear or fundamentally change so be it….. The Republican party stopped being that of the American way decades ago, it’s now corrupt and a cancer to progress, the only thing that the party is good for now is to enable the 1%’s crimes and to obstruct legislation that would otherwise help the great percentage of American people….Working America.

    • @DarkRipper117 You call it advancing progress while others may call it an attack on democracy and the US Constitution . You don’t get to have it
      your way because you want this turd as law . First of all the Supreme Court cannot dismiss the Constitution. Documents are required all through
      the American experience from drivers licenses to social security numbers for taxing and notarized documentation for property ownership.

      This nation will never allow lawlessness prevail within a national election which encourages vote harvesting to run wild in political parties favor .
      Illegals and terrorist’s that just crossed our southern borders would have the capability to influence our election outcomes even over the will of natural
      born citizens .
      You need to grow up and act like a responsible citizen and work towards unifying not dividing this country . Your response above paints you as a
      radical liberal that thinks the democrats are gonna take care of you and hand out endless stimulus checks . Get off the couch and act like a citizen ..

      @ran away Seems to most the Republican Party fell down on their jobs when 500,000 plus Americans lost their lives to a pandemic. Most Republican voters are voting Democratic because of what Trump and his cronies did and continue to do. Republican Party needs a long time out after staging a coup and planning an insurrection. Americans can’t and won’t trust them anymore until they clean up their act and earn trust again.

    • @Deanne DFL rocks! “Republican Party fell down on their jobs when 500,000 plus Americans lost their lives to a pandemic” Please explain how you or anyone else
      can possibly blame deaths from covid-19 on anyone or any political party . Thats like saying if a person steps off a curb into the path of a passing car resulting
      in ones death then the President should be charged with thats persons death which was caused by their own negligence of not anticipating hazards before crossing
      the road . With that revengeful attitude why stop with American deaths and charge him with the deaths of the entire world .. In case you haven’t heard there were
      many elderly covid-19 residents that were removed from hospitals and placed into nursing homes resulting not only in their deaths but others as well including
      employees . These incidents were happening in New York , New Jersey , Michigan , and Pennsylvania all ran by Democrat Governors . Should the President be
      held accountable as well for these deadly incidents ?? . In a rampant virus filled world in which no one had a clue or understanding on how to treat or approach
      covid-19 and with so many conflicting theories coming from the FDA and CDC. To blame any deaths on a President that person has an intelligence level of a child.
      The Republican Party had no involvement with any coup attempt nor did Trump . There was a organized rally in which many bad actors took advantage of this
      situation and rushed the capital buildings after the President gave his speech and had departed. This smear campaign shows exactly how corrupt and organized
      the democrats have become to control the American voters thoughts . The Federal Prosecutor for DC District who’s handling all the prosecutions had already
      proclaimed he could find NO EVIDENCE linking Trump to the insurrection of Jan 6th. DO the research and open up your eyes ..

    • @Ray Bin Thankfully Perdue already dropped out. Warnock is the definitely the favorite in the election, but we cannot get complacent.

      @Ray Bin I believe you. I’m probably mistaken. It could be that I mixed Loeffler up with Perdue. I’m quite sure one of them stated that he or she wouldn’t run in 2022.

    • @Brouwerij Het Snerpende Hertje
      Found out he says he’s not running in 2022..so I have been *incorrect!*

      If they are eligible they should have voter identification right ?

    • @Marcy O’Kweef You must have trouble reading. Look again and read slowly. I know reading isn’t radical Trumpists strongest point, and you all hate democracy but It says ELIGIBLE VOTER’S.

    • No they should not. That only enables the corrupt government to fraudulently cast votes for those who don’t vote. Only people who actually vote should register themselves.

      WHO’S RESTICTING VOTER RIGHTS?? THIS IS TO SAFEGUARD THE VOTING PROCESS SINCE LIBERALS AND DEMOCRATS ALWAYS SCREAM FOUL WHEN THEY LOSE AN ELECTION. SO SORRY YOUR CONFUSED.

    • @mike briganti You cannot be serious, Mike. In 59 court cases alleging voter fraud, a total of zero cases won. Zero. No meaningful voter fraud has been found. Fraud is merely a bs excuse in an attempt for the GOP to change laws that will help them win future elections. And why? Because they cannot win on their ideas.

  19. Stop calling them ” our republican friends “.
    It makes you look two- faced. And they aren’t our friends. They’re our enemy’s trying to stop us from voting.

  20. Moscow Mitch has not got the memo that he is no longer holding America hostage anymore ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES
