"Since the 1980s, this branch of the GOP has tried to dismantle the government in place since the 1930s, which tries to protect equality in America, regulating business, providing a basic social safety net, and promoting infrastructure. They want to take the government back to the 1920s, when businessmen controlled the government, operating it to try to create a booming economy without regard for social or environmental consequences. The GOP, composed now as it is of Trump loyalists, is undermining our democracy. It has fallen in line behind Trump’s Big Lie; Republicans at the state level are using that lie to justify new election laws that suppress Democratic votes and put control of state elections into their own hands. If those laws are allowed to stand, we will be a democracy in name only."
