President Biden spoke on the voting system during a virtual fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee Monday night. He claims it’s “under assault.”

“The single most important thing that we have to do is we have to protect the voting system, protect the sacred right to vote,” Biden said. “It’s under assault in ways that I haven’t seen in my entire career.”  

According to Biden, it’s the Republican party that is assaulting the voting system. “But what Republicans want to do is say a political party gets to decide if a vote counts,” Biden said. “It’s outrageous.  We’re going to fight like hell so that doesn’t happen.  That’s one of the most important things we can do.”

As a result, Republican National Committee spokeswoman Emma Vaughn responded to Biden’s accusations. “Americans are rejecting the failed policies of the Biden administration and turning towards Republicans’ proven message,” Vaughn wrote in a statement. “The RNC continues to build upon the successes of our data-driven ground game, and we look forward to holding Biden and the Democrats accountable for their resounding failures when we take back the House and Senate in 2022.” 

However Biden implied that the federal government under a Democratic majority is the solution to American’s problems. “The Republican party today offers nothing but fear, lies, and broken promises,” Biden said. “We have to keep cutting through the Republican fog –that the government isn’t the problem, and show that we, the people — we, the people, are always the solution.”

Meanwhile, Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently opened up early voting in his state, to Biden’s chagrin. When Biden slammed Abbott for his newest voting bill, the Texas governor reminded him that the bill opens up early voting hours. Not even Biden’s home state of Delaware has early voting hours.

Democratic Representative Hakeem Jeffries says in his speech that the infamous elections takeover bill is “inspired by Hugo Chavez.” He quickly said Cesar Chavez, but not before social media had the chance to blast him for the slip.

Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas quickly tweeted the video with the caption: “The Democrats; election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington ‘gaffe’-accidentally telling the truth.”

New York Democrat Jeffries had previously said the voting rights bills must pass “by any means necessary” and supported “reforming a filibuster rule that is dripping in racist history.” Even President Biden admitted “I hope we can get this done. The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done.”

On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote, “we cannot and we will not rest until this legislation is enacted into law” after the House passed a bill Thursday morning that combined the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, which now has virtually zero chance of surviving the Senate.
