    Voting rights are the most important issue, democracy must be protected before paving any road or getting teeth fixed!

    Never give up

    "Now many of our Christians want everybody to vote. I don't want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of people. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down." 
    —Paul Weyrich, 1980

    Readygetset Truth says:

    Only living, legal, able US citizens 18 and up can vote.

    felixcoqui says:

    The democratic party must protect the voting rights of the people and democratic process of our nation. Don't give up on democracy!

    James Caporale says:

    Schumer should schedule votes on various issues ……every single day ….day after day …..on voting rights , on the filibuster , on the BBB legislation , on raising the debt limit ……Make it clear and obvious ….who the obstructionists are ….have those votes 7 days a week , make Republicans have to show up on Saturday AND Sunday to cast their votes …..make them pay a price for their obstruction …whether it be real Republicans …or the faux Democrats …….Manchin and Sinema …

    jeremy sans3lm says:

    Why?

    You're going to waste our news cycle of the next week and a half on something that's going to fail without filibuster reform? That your plan, Schumer?
