How do you feel?

You can still save your opinion to your scorecard, but since the vote has already taken place, your opinion won't be sent to your lawmakers.

Opponents say

•     "What I do think is clearly a bridge too far is this nonsense that we need to airbrush the Capitol and scrub out everybody from years ago who had any connection to slavery."

Proponents say

•     "[The Statues] are not symbols of Southern heritage, as some claim, but are symbols of white supremacy and defiance of federal authority. It’s past time we end the glorification of men who committed treason against the United States in a concerted effort to keep African Americans in chains."
