John Lewis died a year ago today.

The military has named a Naval vessel in honor of late Rep. John Lewis spent much of his life from teens to death fighting for civil rights and for voting rights. John Lewis put his life on the line numerous times for civil rights and our right to vote.

Yet Joe Manchin from his own party has dragged his feet screeching about bipartisanship (a fantasy in today’s world) and filibuster.

Imagine if in 1965 Manchin was on that bridge “we need to talk to those police beating people to build a concensus of 60 percent to allow us to walk across the bridge””

There's nothing partisan about voting rights. It's a f***ing right. The end. If someone disagrees with that, they're not being partisan, they're being a******s who don't want people to have the right to vote.

Amazing how the "shall NOT be infringed!" types are constantly trying to infringe.

Manchin is that moderate that MLK warned about.
