FAST AND FRIVOLOUS
Very odd we have people who are happy US citizens having the right to buy automatic combat weapons without showing id debate about guns in the hands of criminals. Maybe it's just a cover to continue the agenda of stopping the Democrats per suing their policy goals and suppressing voter rights? That's what Pelosi is saying and it makes perfect sense. You can guarantee it's not constitutional either, which after the GOP's immigration tantrum on the constitution, begs the question will any of you here speak out when you realise it was all a desperate GOP ploy? I doubt it.
"It is no accident, it is no coincidence, that the attorney general of the United States is the person responsible for making sure that voter suppression does not happen in our country," Pelosi said at her weekly briefing. "These very same people who are holding him in contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote. They're closely allied with those who are suffocating the system: unlimited special interest secret money."
The Democratic leader said it is "really important" to note the connection between the GOP push for a contempt vote and voter suppression efforts, particularly since, she said, the whole point is to distract from the fact that congressional Republicans aren't focused on substantive issues. She noted that the House is lining up a vote next week to hold the attorney general in contempt at a time when there are only nine days left to pass a bill to keep transportation projects funded and a bill to prevent student loan interest rates from doubling.
"Instead, let us tie the hands of the person who is assigned to make sure that the American people have the right to vote ... and that their vote is counted," Pelosi said. "It's all tied together."
