House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi

"[The Civil Rights Act] was quite a remarkable thing. It changed America. It made us more American. It was long overdue. What better way to observe that greatness than to pass the Voting Rights Act?" said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California). "This court made a destructive and bad decision one year ago. We have a bipartisan bill. It's not the bill [Democrats] would have written but it corrects the decision of the court. We're calling upon the speaker of the house to give us our vote on this bill."
