I’m worried about voting rights

Let’s be optimistic. Let’s say that Manchin and Sinema agree to bypass the filibuster and one or more voting rights bills pass and are signed into law by Biden. (I don’t think this will happen but just for sake of discussion, let’s say it does.)

This is what worries me:

Republicans would take this to the courts and it would go all the way to the Supreme Court. The right-wing Supreme Court has already shown they are not interested in voting rights when they gutted the 1965 law. They have said they will not interfere with partisan gerrymandering.

I would expect them to overturn any new voting laws and we’ll be right back where we are today. None of this will change until (if and when) we get a liberal majority on the Supreme Court.
