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.
