(Gateway Pundit) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Thursday in a press conference that she personally believes it’s “really important” to lower the voting age to 16.
It’s no surprise that Pelosi wants to capture the high school demographic — it’s a perfect time to push the teenagers to vote after they have been indoctrinated with left wing propaganda by the public school system their whole lives.
Furthermore, teenagers have no life experience and tend to lean left, because “free stuff” sounds great to kids.
“I myself, personally, not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16,” Pelosi said when asked by a Daily Caller reporter about her thoughts on the issue. “I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school when they’re interested in all of this and learning about government to be able to vote.”
“Some of the priorities in this bill are about transparency, openness, and accessibility, and the rest,” Pelosi added. “That’s a subject of debate and I would welcome it, but I’ve held this position for a long time.”

House Democrats are pushing to lower the voting age to 16 and introduced an amendment to the “For The People Act” which would overhaul election and campaign finance laws.
H.R.1 was supported by the Democrats so they can gain even more control over voters and the voting process.
H.R.1 did pass the Dem-controlled House, however, the amendment failed 126-305.
Most recently, the D.C. Council voted to introduce a bill that could lower the voting age to 16 in the nation’s capital. The bill would allow for teens as young as 16 to vote in both federal and state elections.
The Democrat party’s target demographics are illegal aliens, young teens and welfare recipients because sane, hard working adult American taxpayers would not vote for their policies.
