PHILADELPHIA (AP) — President Joe Biden declared preserving voting rights an urgent national “test of our time” on Tuesday but offered few concrete proposals to meet it.
Texas Democrats took their
own dramatic action to stymie Republican efforts to tighten ballot restrictions in their state.
Biden, who has proclaimed protecting ballot access the central cause of his presidency, has faced
sharp criticism from allies for not doing more, though political headwinds and stubborn Senate math
have limited his ability to act. Despite his ringing words Tuesday, he avoided any mention of trying to
alter the Senate filibuster rule that stands in the path of federal legislation.
Speaking at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, Biden called state efforts to curtail voting accessibility
“un-American” and “un-democratic” and launched a broadside against his predecessor, Donald Trump, who baselessly
alleged misconduct in the 2020 election after his defeat. Biden called passage of congressional proposals to override
new state voting restrictions and to restore parts of the Voting Rights Act that were curbed in recent years by the
Supreme Court “a national imperative.”
