If you didn’t know, Dick Durbin is considered the biggest liar in the Senate. As proof, he posted this to Twitter today:
Dickie left out a few facts. DEMOCRATS filibustered this Act for 74 days.
When it was finally voted on in the Senate 46 Democrats voted for it, 21 voted against it. 27 Republicans voted for it, only 6 didn’t.
96 Democrats in the House voted against it, only 34 Republicans.
Only 19.5% of Republicans in the House and Senate voted against the Civil Right Act. 37.1% of Democrats did.
Who didn’t want voting rights for minorities Dick?
Dick Durbin left out a LOT of facts. Congress doesn’t need to protect voting rights, they need to pass voter ID (or let the states do it).
80% of voters support voter ID, Democrats leadership doesn’t because it makes cheating harder. https://thefederalist.com/2021/06/22/poll-80-percent-of-americans-support-voter-id-laws/
