Sen. Schumer said it best: Voter suppression is now an official part of the GOP platform.
We can’t rely on support from across the aisle in order to secure our democracy. We need to end the filibuster or have a voting rights exception.

We can’t rely on the goodwill of industry to close the racial wealth gap.
Black and Brown communities need us to deliver the bold policies–like Medicare for All, College for All, and Broadband for All–that will create real economic change.

A MAJORITY of voters want Congress to lower the Medicare eligibility age and expand the program to cover hearing, vision, and dental.
We can’t recover from this pandemic without health care. It’s time to expand Medicare.https://t.co/o3vWGr1CwW

If it wasn’t obvious before, it is now:
Our Republican colleagues simply aren’t interested in working with us.
We need to be ready to move forward without them. We can’t let the filibuster stand in the way of protecting Americans’ right to vote.https://t.co/YRE1DzQuRe

We can’t sit idly by while democracy is in peril – here, in America. We need to protect the sacred right to vote and ensure “We the People” choose our leaders, the very foundation on which our democracy rests. We urgently need the For The People Act.
Send it to my desk.

Republicans are the driving force behind a wave of bills restricting voting rights around the country. They’re ready to block the For the People Act and any bill that stops voter suppression.
It’s our democracy OR the filibuster. We can’t have both.
