Most of us in this country agree that our democratic system works best when we all have our voices heard and our votes counted.
Americans are justifiably skeptical that they can have elected officials who truly work for them.
Now, a compromise bill, the Freedom the Vote Act — based on the For the People Act and a framework announced by Sen. Joe Manchin earlier this summer — offers Democrats a path forward. This is the vehicle that can become law.
The truth is that Republicans have made restricting the freedom to vote a central part of their platform, and they have rejected every proposal, compromise or not, that has come their way.
With the For the People Act, this new Congress has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to repair the damage and restore the promise of a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
