Pelosi: GOP Likes to Show for the Rosa Parks Statue Unveiling But Do Nothing on Voting Rights

‘We would hope that we could get a Voting Rights Bill passed in the Congress’

EXCERPT:

PELOSI: “I went on to say no one should underestimate the power of this method, we must continue to gain the ballot. So my statement there was, we would hope that we could get a voting rights bill passed in the Congress. Members like to show up for the unveiling. The Republican leadership likes to show up for the unveiling of the Rosa Parks’ statue or to go to Selma, Alabama, for the 50th anniversary and come home and do nothing."
