This will be an interesting investigation by the new House controlled by the Dems

The Dems are going to investigate all of the so called voter suppression laws and rules by GOP controlled legislatures and power positions in the states. They will start with Georgia, but will surely look at all of the states that support laws that suppress voter's rights. If they are able to remove such laws, will it have any effect on future elections? Would eliminating those laws or rules be constitutional? I guess we will find out in the next two years.

Good. Republicans wasted millions of taxpayer dollars to repeatedly investigate voter fraud they couldn't find just to cover up their electoral fraud they commit. Let's take a peak shall we?

Do you remember the last budget passed by the GOP? The Dems hopefully won't do as bad as that one.

The last budget passed by the GOP was the last budget passed by anyone since 2008.

At this point, it doesn't really matter how bad it is...it'll be a miracle to even get one.

Congress doesn't have the power to do anything about state and local voting laws.
