59. What about voting rights?

New roads and bridges and all that other stuff mean nothing if large portions of Americans are blocked from voting or have their votes tossed by repubs.

My community's right to weigh in on how our government spends our tax dollars is in peril. There's a reason why Georgia republicans are purging Democrats from local election boards. It's because they want the authority to decide which absentee votes will count and not count. They want the authority to decide who gets mailed an absentee ballot, and when the ballot gets mailed. They want to cause chaos. And those who actually receive their ballots on time will still have to worry about their votes being tossed if or when a Democratic candidate pulls ahead of the republican candidate. Of course, the alternative is to brave the (purposely) long lines at the voting precincts during a pandemic. How is any of this fair? It's 2022, ffs!
