President Biden expressed frustration with how voting bills have stalled in Congress as he’s talked privately with lawmakers but proclaimed Tuesday: “I’m tired of being quiet.”
“I’ve been having these quiet conversations with members of Congress over the last two months. I’m tired of being quiet,” Biden said, slamming the lectern in frustration.
The comments come as some voting rights advocates said they would not attend Biden’s speech in Atlanta, saying they would like to see action on voting rights legislation, not another speech by the President.
“The Vice President and I have supported voting rights bills since day one of this administration, but every time Senate republicans have blocked the way,” Biden added.
