House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer

"We need to be militants today, nonviolent militants. Peaceful militants, but impatient militants," in the fight to ensure that every American has the right to vote, said Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland). “In that building, five men [on the Supreme Court] said we’re going to weaken that guarantee in America, the greatest democracy on Earth. You’re here so we can pass...a bill that will say to [the Supreme Court] we still believe that every American must have the right unfettered and appreciated to vote. With your help we’ll get it done.”
