Is Pennsylvania set to be the next Republican-run state to attack voting rights?

1 post / 0 new

The Republican-controlled state Senate passed a new voter ID law – which is expected to be signed by Republican Governor Tom Corbett. Pennsylvania would become the 16th state in the nation to require voters to buy an ID to vote – a requirement that will prevent as many as five million elderly, low-income, and college student voters from voting in November, according to the Brennan Center for Justice. The new law would also cost about $4 million to implement – all to maintain one-party Republican rule in Pennsylvania.

But as American bombers continue to strike against ISIS in Iraq and now Syria, it now looks like the War on Terror will be with us for years to come. And that’s a really dangerous thing for our democracy.
