This is something that the American people have been under for 42 years that was supposed to be a temporary remedy for the problem.  Now they are trying to extend it for another twenty-five years.  That would be 67 years under this act.  Look at the things that have changed since then.

To me, this deserves close scrutiny.  This was the cornerstone of the Civil Rights Movement.  But this is more about politics than the people's right to vote.  If this were about the right to vote, then this bill would include districts in 2000 and 2004 that showed improprities.  Let's take history and lead from that.

Let's let every state come under the scrutiny that the South came under in 1964, 1968, and 1972.
