Opinion: Pass national voting rights legislation
I am angry, totally disgusted with all members of the House of Representatives and the Senate that refuse to vote for the right-to-vote bill (the For The People Act).
This is supposed to be a democracy, a form of government that is based upon all citizens having a right to vote. If getting reelected is more important than preserving our democracy, I say that now is the time to pass term limits and get rid of the dead wood in Congress.
It is not unreasonable to have voting by mail, multiple days to hold our elections, drive by voting and automatic voter registration.
What are the Republicans afraid of?
