GOP senators BLOCK Democrat election overhaul bill

GOP senators voted unanimously to block the so-called Freedom to Vote Act proposed by Democrats.

On Wednesday, the bill failed to reach the 60-vote threshold to advance. Republicans said they refuse to increase control of U.S. elections by the federal government.

The act was similar to the failed For the People Act, though it included voter ID compromises for West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin. Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) latest proposal aimed to take away a state’s right to map out their own congressional districts and allow for mass mail-in balloting nationwide. While many say it’s a Democrat wish list, Schumer has called it a compromise.

Thank God the GOP finally found their spine and stood up for free elections.

Yeah, but how long before they forget where they set that spine down again?
Romans 6:17-18 But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.

On this one issue the Republicans have been pretty solid, other things not so much.
The Democratic party is longest running racist organization in the country. Going strong for over 200 years.

Caving on this one would be political suicide on the same scale as voting for impeachment.

So, we can expect the shithead Mitt Romney to cave early and often on this, like the Dim'Rat cock sucker he truly is?
