The people want their voting rights to be protected
As President Biden, Spokesman Pelosi, and Majority Leader Schumer develop strategies for obtaining voting rights protection through the Senate, the American people are demanding that their voting rights be protected from ongoing Republican voter suppression attacks at the state level.
Chances are that if Senate Democrats can’t get a filibuster on proxy legislation, their next step will be to add critical voting protections to the Infrastructure Reconciliation Act.
Texans witness a GOP-led theft of their voting rights and express their displeasure.
The Senate must act to protect voting rights. Local people in Texas and across the country are demanding it.
