  • GEORGIA (or really, mostly Kemp) - get over here and pay attention and listen here! (And I am a Georgia resident)

  • Kentucky who knew. Mitch must be turning in his grave. Oh wait he's not dead yet.

  • HJR77 has been passed into law. Mask mandates and business occupation limits are no longer valid in Kentucky.

  • McConnell is gonna spontaneously combust


  • Way to go Kentucky very very nice everybody a chance to vote


  • The unwritten product conservatively ask because flower developmentally shrug an a tart ronald. cooing, coherent lung

  • Go kentucky! Don't be like Georgia! Be more like Kentucky!

  • The National Basketball Association, the Main stream media and Major League Baseball have decided to be political action committee's for Biden/Harris and the Democrat party. In addition, the following companies below worked on Joe Biden's behalf, fund raised, and campaigned for the Biden, BLM and other far left activist organizations.

  • Omg you need an ID to vote? Sounds racist to me

    • Hey stupid read the 93 pages! IDs are only mentioned on one!

  • Kentucky is doing a terrific job on vaccination with 1.5 million first dose and 906,000 people now fully vaccinated already! Adapting to working and mailing in ballots for convenience during the pandemic makes sense. Georgia in contrast has a new state election access law that may seem more reactionary and partisan gerrymandering and needs a court challenge.

  • Its always the democrats looking out for all not the few, shame on Republicans

    • Did you actually watch the video? Do you understand the meaning of "a bipartisan bill."?

  • Voting laws have to be the same from State to State.

  • its not cancel culture when an 1804 electoral college can allowed a half wit like trump into office after he got nearly 3 million fewer votes nation wide in the 2016 election. we never picked mad donny. the congress of 1804 did .

  • i wish that voter i d would become a national law. the reason is its a non issue . who can not get a picture i d . its a b s crying point that needs to be taken off the table. there is so little fraud in elections its just a wonder the g o p can ever bring it up at all. but a national voter i d rule would shut them up at last on this non issue.

    • I guess you did not read the other 92 pages of the bill?

  • Oh shi! Here we go again! Another state where “racism” and cancel culture punishing Red States!

  • Good for Kentucky. Nice to see.

  • Of course Kentucky GOP are happy with relaxing voting, they're a deep red state. If they were within a few % of the state flipping to the democrats the state GOP would be passing restrictive laws faster than you can say Jim Crow. On the flip side - if Kentucky can relax voting laws then why can't Ga. - guess we all know the reason for that.

  • Driver licenses to vote in Georgia only ID Jane Timm fcking lies

  • State lawmaker acting like they are not part of have a congress and senate who has a universal rule on election handled by commission on election.does a specific lawmakers can override your national law on law of election?these lawmaker should be recalled by your doj when question if there are probable cause they should be brought to court toface the consequences..such a sad state of righteous thinker country.who are look upon by other democratic loving at the state of overusing laws that specific state playing god superceding existing laws that govern usa...sad doubt ceo's are speaking out their voices as their right of freedom.being scolded by mcconnell?.. really? Hay gratitude are non now a days

  • H E Y - we CAN all get along. Kinda groovy that it was "Kain-Tuck" that took us there. BTW the state was named for the over abundance of wild cane stalks that grew there, which made it a destination source for that most ubiquitous of building materials - bamboo (called "cain" by the locals).

  • Thank you for your Patriotism.

    • @Muddy Water more so they are obsessed with power. That's why they hoard gun and hunting dogs.

    • Lol...the Europeans are still obsessed with Trump.

  • One step in the right direction
