In other words, Biden doesn’t seem interested in combating Voter Suppression directly through legislation.
Thanks a lot Mr. President, you really are a Do-Nothing Democrat.
That’s a remarkably unfair takeaway. Legislation to protect voting rights is something he has been advocating for a while now. The Democrats have even brought two bills before the Senate to do just that, the For The People Act (an elections reform bill), and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (which would require states and jurisdictions with a history of racial voting discrimination to submit new voting laws to the Justice Department for approval). But the filibuster still exists, with its 60 vote requirement to pass those into law, and not a single member of the GOP has been willing to help pass either of those. So what exactly can they do at this point aside from organizing and fighting in other ways?
