Seth Meyers, host of NBC’s Late Night, went of a lengthy rant claiming Republicans want to suppress the vote and the Democrats’ HR-1 is the solution, along with abolishing the filibuster.
He began by maintaining the current electoral system is “heavily tilted toward a minority of voters that are predominately white and rural, thanks in large part to anti-majoritarian institutions like the Electoral College and the Senate.” He soon cited how Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock “delivered an impassioned speech in favor of sweeping voting reforms, and he noted that the GOP assault on voting rights is the most ferocious attack on democracy since the era of Jim Crow.”
Meyers advocated in favor of HR-1, “a sweeping package of urgent voting reforms passed by the House that are desperately needed to level what is currently a very lopsided playing field.” He insisted “Republicans tried to steal the last election through the courts. That didn’t work, so now they’re trying to steal the next election through voter suppression. Nuking or changing the filibuster to stop them is a moral necessity.”
