HRC Room-Movement on voting rights following Hillary Clinton pitch

It has only been two weeks since Hillary Clinton's speech on voting rights and there have been some meaningful and significant movement in this area http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/movement-voting-rights-following-hillary-clinton-pitch?cid=eml_mra_20150616 Normally you do not see much movement in this area but HRC may have accelerated the consideration of changes to voting rights

1. K & R

Why block Americans from voting? Because GOPers can't win nationals with coat tails for senate and house.

2. It has picked up after Hillary has spoken on this subject. This is an issue which

Should not need efforts we need to be somewhere else. The GOP pushes too many non scandals.

3. It's amazing to me that the GOP is against this

 

Is there anything "good" for the population that the Republicans don't hate? This should be something supported on both sides of the aisle - making it easy for the population to have their voices heard. We should be doing everything we can to give everyone the chance to vote.

The big thing fear republicans spout is voter fraud...but I feel like the current system actually makes it easier to commit fraud (self registration) than one where the government automatically enrolls everyone and updates the roster when they move/die.

4. I've said it repeatedly,

but what's also amazing is they're opposing voting rights while constantly throwing the "freedom" word around, and calling certain Democrats tyrants. How can you claim to fight for freedom and abide by the Constitution while making it more difficult for fellow Americans to exercise a basic Constitutional right? And there was a time when they used to not oppose everything that's good for the country, but that was long ago. Supporting infrastructure, environmental regulations, tougher gun laws, voting rights, etc. is a thing of the past in the GOP.
