McConnell said, “One assumes Compromise between some Democrats carries more than just passing by Similarity to the parties and Takeover for which her party has been touted for years. It introduces its own catastrophic liabilities such as a Automation proposal relocate what for sure constitutionally questionable. At the end of the day, madam President who is brewing Crisis from its peak Legislative priority, right? make a lot of difference. You have done it well clear that the force behind S.1 is a Desire to manipulate the rules of American elections permanent. Permanently with the Democrats Like. Therefore, the Senate will not leave room for this catastrophic proposal. “
Mitch McConnell doesn’t want the right to vote protected because if Americans vote in large numbers, Republicans lose elections. The 2020 elections showed that when it is easier to vote, people show up and vote.
McConnell’s position that all is well and nothing needs to be done has been spoken like a man who knows that if people can vote, he will never again be the Senate majority leader.
Senator McConnell only cares about himself and his power. He believes that the suppression of the vote is his way back to becoming a majority leader.
He doesn’t care about democracy, human rights or the nation.
Anyone who argues that facilitating participation in the democratic process is manipulating elections is un-American.
