well well well the Dems are putting some quality propsals on the table

course Mitch is pissed....as the GOP rigging of the American voting system may be exposed

Mitch pissed calling it a 'power grab' as Dems try to make election day a federal holiday

The far-reaching legislation would also prohibit the purging of voter rolls, require presidential and vice-presidential candidates to release their tax returns, compel states to adopt independent redistricting commissions and create a matching system for small-dollar donations to congressional campaigns, among other changes.

“Voting is a power grab. By citizens,” Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii)

I like this idea "combining Election Day with Veterans Day" then we don't have to worry about victimizmizing every American taxpayer -mitch's words

They are pissed because all the tricks and scams they do to supress voting are being exposed to light
I really hope the KY voters stick it to Mitch in 2020

Will need to flip senate in 2020 and win presidency to make this a reality...,it really needs to happen

I wonder if Supreme Court would declare it unconstitutional?

yeah, they'd go insane.  because after years of snipping a little voters' rights here, a little bit there... it would all be undone, and then some, in one swoop.

Y’all do understand making a day a federal holiday in no way makes the majority of “poor” people have it off, right?

I know... a simple concept too
this ARE the droids we were looking for!

I wholeheartly agree, but corporations like wallmart and starbuck will want to do the civic duty (PR) and a lot more "poor" people will easily be able to vote


We've really gotta message this one simple and really drive it into the ground
there is no good argument for not having easy access to voting
but we have to OWN the narative
Hell I'd give trump $10 bill for the wall if he passed some legendary voting reform
he could actually do it and it might be something his base (i.e. not his handelers) would like

Other than the ACA this is the first Act dems have done in a while that seems memorable
this is a winner....we should wait on all the big shit until we figure out how to un rig this system


edit...they've already got a name for it
Democracy Day is the tentative name of a possible federal holiday

I do like Cory...
he's got charisma that so many of the other candidates lack
