  6. Here's an idea. Make a universal identification card with all your information on it. No longer needed are individual state licenses/id cards. It will be a united states card that contains your driving eligibility, your social security number, voting eligibility, as well as passport information if applicable. Every person gets an ID free of charge and then pays for the extra stuff like passport, chauffeur, commercial or motorcycle endorsement for driving. Not that hard.

  11. "Senate (Trumpian) Republicans Block Democrats’ Election Overhaul Bill" thereby reminding us, yet again, that #Jan621 Insurrectionist #DJT is "utterly incompetent" as per the words of both his own Federal Judge elder-sister Maryanne Trump Barry and his own Clinical Psychologist niece Dr. Mary Trump. May #Imp2POTUS45 always hear "You're fired" via the unwavering reality of election results that reject him who is the cause of #MourningInAmerica.

  13. Why shouldn’t we be asked to show an ID of some kind in order to prove who we are? That we are here legally to be able to vote. Every legal citizen of this country should have access to vote, but there needs to be checks and balances. If you don’t have an ID, go get your SS card; which everyone should have anyway…….if you pay taxes……which some “citizens” don’t, they just live off the government and REAL taxpayers.

  14. The Republican Party is no longer a legitimate party of reason. It has devolved into an enclave of obstructionists and cult followers — our way or the highway. Please vote those good-for-nothing "lawmakers" out of office in the upcoming elections.

The GOP (Gangster Organization Party), which has been converted by Trump into a historically classic, Fascist party, just shot down Democrats' fantasy on the U.S. Senate floor. Minority rule will continue under GOP Fascism!! Long live the filibuster, voter suppression, and gerrymandering??
