Some Veterans Say Republicans are Blocking Their Ability to Vote

While Republicans give lip service to respecting our veterans, they prove the validity of the axiom “talk is cheap”.

Senators this week left Washington for a month-long summer break after Republicans blocked consideration of a Democratic bill to expand voting access across the nation, arguing that it would give the federal government too much power in local elections that should be controlled by the states.

But some veterans argued that refusing to move the bill forward is actually an attack on those who served in uniform and risked their lives to defend the right to vote.
