Dem Sen. Casey: Dems Have to Protect Voting Rights to ‘Preserve Our Democracy’

0 4

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Velshi,” Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) stated that “we’re at a point of no return.” And Democrats are either going to protect “voter rights to preserve the democracy or we’re not.”

Casey said, “Ali, we’re — we’ve reached a point now with these Supreme Court decisions and with the advent of all of these…voter suppression bills throughout the country, where we’re at a point of no return. We’re either going to preserve our democracy and thereby protecting voting rights or protecting voter rights to preserve the democracy or we’re not. It’s — we’ve come to, I think, a point where Democrats have to stand up and get something done. Now, I think we can do that. Because it’s apparent to me that Republicans are just going to endorse these voter suppression bills. And at its core, we should just be blunt about this, at its core, these voter suppression bills are about white supremacy. And unfortunately, it seems like the Republican Party is becoming a one or two-issue agenda party where they seem to be only interested in stopping Joe Biden’s programs, especially on these caregiving issues and supporting voter suppression bills.”
