Markey: ‘Paranoid’ GOP Attempting ‘Carve Out the Voting Rights’ of Black and Brown Americans

‘We cannot allow for the Republican Party to use the 60 vote margin that has to be reached to in order to pass strengthen voting rights in our country’

EXCERPT:
MARKEY: “We cannot allow for the Republican Party to use the 60 vote margin that has to be reached to in order to pass strengthen voting rights in our country to be the obstacle to block the erosion of rights going on right now in Texas, in Arizona, in Florida, in Georgia. In red state after red state, they are paranoid that what happened in Georgia when Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff won is the prediction of what will happen in state after state across red America. If that is what the Republicans are going to do, then the filibuster must go so we can strengthen voting rights.”
