Description

The Supreme Court ruled last month that federal courts cannot rule on cases of partisan gerrymandering, saying that judges are not entitled to second-guess the decisions made by state legislators who draw voting maps. We spoke to one man who has long believed there’s a way to address the issue without the courts. Guest: Eric H. Holder Jr., who served as the United States attorney general for six years under President Barack Obama. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily

Is Mr.Holder insane? So let me get this, in order for Democrats to have a seat at the table to draw fairer boundaries in 2021, they have to "win elections" but how can they win elections if they can't be competitive in Gerrymandered districts in 2020??

Crazy. Absolutely insane. Politicians putting trust in other politicians. Never gonna happen, you can't fully trust any politician, Republican, Democratic, Independent, idc. They are all just saying what needs to be said to get our vote.
