Good. But wtf scotus, really hurt the fight for equal voting rights by striking down section 4 of the vra, and expecting our horrible congress to update it.

A good win but a major loss over the last two days.

The 15 amendment give people the right to vote. Section 4 allowed the federal goverment to pick and choose which state, counties, cities, etc... that had to submit voting procedures to the feds. Not sure if its needed anymore and not evn sure how its even used today.

Because places that are subject to section for have displayed numerous changes in practices and redistricting efforts to suppress the growing minority vote. Now our horribly inefficient congress is asked to reformulate it? Not going to happen if we struggle to even pass the farm bill, let alone immigration reform.

The Senate approved the the vra recently 98 to 2, I believe. Isn't that the legislature, which represents the people, speaking? Like I mentioned before, scalia is a hypocrite by opposing doma based on concerns of judicial activism and just 24 hours before he struck down section 4.

Seems like folks will bend their argument any way to placate their beliefs.
