What Democrats are Doing:
Our government and our elections are supposed to reflect the interests of the American people, not only the wealthiest few and the biggest corporations. Democrats fight to restore and protect Americans’ fundamental right to vote, reform the broken campaign finance system, strictly enforce ethics laws and improve transparency across the federal government in order to rebuild trust with the American people.
What Republicans Are Doing:
The GOP is full of politicians who don’t accept the 2020 election results and have not condemned the attempted insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021. Despite undemocratic representation in the Senate (California’s 39 million people and Wyoming’s 581,000 people both get two senators), Senate Republicans oppose reforming the filibuster that skews representation even more towards minority rule. In the last Congress, Republicans blocked two voting rights bills. In 2021, red state after red state enacted new voter suppression laws. Republicans pose a threat to our freedoms and a threat to democracy.
