In a fiery speech, President Biden called for changing Senate rules to pass voting rights protections, going further than he has before to unify Senate Democrats around what he framed as an existential issue for the country.
Noting the difficulty of passing legislation out of an evenly divided Senate — “we have 51 presidents,” he quipped — Biden urged a small group of holdouts within his own party to consider how their position on this civil rights issue may define their legacy.
“I ask every elected official in America: Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace?” Biden said. “The side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? The side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?”
President Biden is debuting sharper attacks against Republicans to make the upcoming midterm elections into more of a choice between The Democrats and the GOP.

This is the kind of partisan gerrymandering Freedom to Vote Act that would block must fight to remain The United States of America, with Liberty and Justice for all. The Senate’s upcoming votes on voting rights may be the most important votes ever taken because, without free and fair elections, the rest of our system falls apart. This is the foundation of our democracy, and we must defend it.
