At this week’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) pushed back on claims that voter ID laws were racially discriminatory.
Despite Democrats calling new voter integrity laws Jim Crow 2.0 and racist, the facts in the bills reveal no bias of one group over another. The goal has been and is to better verify that the person voting is clearly identified and votes legally.
Why do Democrats want to blast such changes? It seems clear that Democrats like the current rules and know how to work them to their advantage. Adding any measure that could change up the process is seen as an advantage to Republicans, something that triggers the left and results in Democrats playing the race card yet again.
In brilliant fashion, Lee challenges the issue by showing all of the other times Americans must use photo ID. To board a plane, purchase medicine, buy alcohol, our entire society is built upon people using photo ID to prove their identity.
Democrats don’t like when Republicans change rules, but voters need to know their votes count in order for future elections to remain successful for all.
If you know anyone with doubts about the voter ID issue, this is the video to watch and share to make the case.
