States control elections not the Feds. Thank God for that. HR1 is going nowhere.

The problem with that thinking is that sometimes red states work so energetically to deny people, mostly minorities, their constitutional rights that the feds have to step in to protect those rights. Like civil rights legislation sixty years ago. And kinda like integration in schools in Little Rock and Birmingham. In this case, fearing the loss of their white supremacist status of five hundred years, Republicans have seriously overreached in several states, thereby almost inviting the feds to intervene.

And HR1 is going nowhere only so long as Joe Manchin refuses to see reality. I wonder what goodies Mitch McConnell has offered him to hold the line.
