Biden on Supreme Court

Daily Wire: ‘Biden Blasts SCOTUS Decision On Arizona Voting Laws, But His Own Administration Supported It’

“On Thursday, responding to the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to uphold two Arizona voting provisions, including the requirement for election officials to throw out an entire ballot if it was cast at the wrong precinct and making it a felony to collect and deliver another person’s ballot (ballot harvesting), President Biden hurled charges that the Supreme Court had ‘now done severe damage to two of the most important provisions of the Voting Rights Act of 1965,’ while using it as a pretext for continuing ‘the fight for the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.’

Biden complained, ‘While this broad assault against voting rights is sadly not unprecedented, it is taking on new forms. It is no longer just about a fight over who gets to vote and making it easier for eligible voters to vote. It is about who gets to count the vote and whether your vote counts at all. … Today’s decision also makes it all the more imperative to continue the fight for the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to restore and expand voting protections. The Court’s decision, harmful as it is, does not limit Congress’ ability to repair the damage done today: it puts the burden back on Congress to restore the Voting Rights Act to its intended strength.’

Carrie Severino, the president of Judicial Network, fired back, ‘This is cynical political theater from Joe Biden—his administration’s own lawyers confirmed to the Supreme Court that Arizona’s laws did not violate the Voting Rights Act and Arizona should win this case.'”
