Get a load of this.
In a shocking turn of events, Democrat Rep. Ayanna Pressley of “The Squad” is now calling on Democrats to lower the voting age to just 16-years-old and has also called on raising the age for gun ownership to 21.
According to Fox, Pressley now joins one of the many progressive Democrats calling on lowering the voting age to 16.
This isn’t Pressley’s first time trying to lower the age to 16 either. Last year she attempted to do the same thing but failed to do so in a vote that came out to 302-125 against her move.
In 2021 Pressley stated, “A 16-year-old in 2021 possesses a wisdom and a maturity that comes from 2021 challenges, 2021 hardships, and 2021 threats. Now is the time for us to demonstrate the courage that matches the challenges of the modern-day 16- and 17-year-old.”
Lowering the voting age to 16 could be exactly what the Democrats need to take over future election when it comes to both the midterms and the presidency.
