Majority of House Democrats vote in favor of lowering voting age to 16

11

Of course. The Democrats know full well that lowering the voting age would automatically give them millions of new voters, since American teenagers are being indoctrinated in Leftist schools. The Republican Party needs to become much more aggressive in confronting the Left. Now that the Left controls Congress and the White House, there is no telling what they will do in order to obtain permanent political power. The Senate filibuster is the only mechanism that we have to prevent some of the most dangerous legislation that we have ever seen from passing. The people of West Virginia need to make sure that Senator Joe Manchin does not break his promise to end the filibuster.

Democrats need election fraud and easily duped morons whose brains are not fully formed in order to “win” elections.

Majority of House Democrats vote in favor of lowering voting age to 16

By Fox News, March 3, 2021

Progressive Democrats in the House of Representatives unsuccessfully pushed an amendment lowering the federal voting age to 16 as part of the H.R. 1 voting rights package on Wednesday.

The vote was 125-302 in the House with the majority of Democrats voting in favor, 125-93, according to C-SPAN.

“A sixteen-year-old in 2021 possesses a wisdom and a maturity that comes from 2021 challenges, 2021 hardships, and 2021 threats,” Rep. Ayanna Pressley, one of the members of Congress behind the amendment, said in a statement on Monday. “Now is the time for us to demonstrate the courage that matches the challenges of the modern-day sixteen- and seventeen-year-old.”

Pressley, Rep. Grace Meng, D-N.Y., and Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., reintroduced the amendment on Monday.

Pressley said in February she was “shocked” that lowering the legal voting age to 16 is a “polarizing” subject of debate.

Pressley made the comment during a Facebook Live conversation with Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., and author Ibram X. Kendi.

“Dr. Kendi, I was shocked by how polarizing an issue this was, and listen, when I would tell people [the late Rep.] John Lewis is an original co-sponsor of this — you know, our young people deserve to have a stakeholder in our democracy,” Pressley, a member of the so-called “Squad,” said in response to Kendi, who said lowering the voting age is an example of anti-racist policy.

The idea isn’t brand new. The amendment to lower the voting age was first attached to H.R. 1 in March 2019, when the measure failed after garnering just 126 votes in the House.

“Beginning at the age of 16, young people are contributing to both the labor force and their local economies by paying income taxes, and yet they are deprived of the opportunity to exercise their right to vote,” Pressley said on the House floor in 2019. “In this country, we affirm that when a person walks into the voting booth and pulls that lever, there is no meritocracy or hierarchy. The booth is the equalizer.”
