The Democrats are willing to do just about anything for more votes.

Fearing another humiliating loss to President Trump in 2020 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a handful of other Democrats are supporting the idea to lower the national voting age to 16!

“I myself, personally, I’m not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16,” Pelosi told The Daily Caller. “I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school when they’re interested in all of this when they’re learning about government to be able to vote.”

“Some of the priorities in this bill are about transparency and openness and accessibility, and the rest,” she added. “That’s a subject of debate but my view is that I would welcome it, but I’ve been in that position for a long time.”

The idea of lowering the age to vote was debated in the House as an amendment on the “For The People Act” which is a democratic bill (H.R. 1) trying to overhaul U.S. election and campaign finance laws.

However, this idea isn’t new. Thirteen states have proposed bills to lower the voting age since 2013.

H.R. 1 actually passed the House because of a Democratic majority even though it was strongly opposed by the ACLU.

The ACLU, focusing on the DISCLOSE section of the bill, stated it will, “unconstitutionally infringe the freedoms of speech and association.” That section requires the disclosure of “names and addresses of donors who gave $10,000 or more to organizations that engage in ‘campaign-related disbursements,’ which includes electioneering communications and independent expenditures.”

“I disagree with the ACLU on this. In terms of legislation, we couldn’t be prouder of H.R. 1.” Pelosi said. “This is about reducing the role of big dark special interest money in politics and empowering small donors. It’s about ending voter suppression. It’s about making re-districting fairer. It’s really a source of joy and hope to so many people in the country.”
