Since the 2020 presidential election, Republicans across the state have passed 18 voter suppression laws in 30 across the country. And there will be more state legislatures held by the GOP before the end of the year, unless Congress acts quickly to protect our voting rights.

So far, I’ve seen more talk than action in the way President Joe Biden has handled our voting rights crisis. He advocated for voting rights legislation and called on Congress to take action, but he failed to do one very obvious thing that would change this fight: unequivocally support an end to the systematic obstruction.

Jim Crow’s obstruction is the thing that stands in the way of passing a once in a generation law like the For the People Act and John Lewis’ Advancement of Voting Rights Act. If Biden really wants the Senate to pass these bills, he must use his influence as president to get the Senate to do away with filibuster.

Anything less is a failure to deal with this crisis.
