'This is a moment not only of crisis but inherent in that crisis is an opportunity,' Rice said

Former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice said the coronavirus crisis provided an “opportunity” to ensure every American could vote by mail.

During a CNN interview on Wednesday, Anchor Wolf Blitzer asked Rice:

“You’ve written an article, an opinion op-ed in The New York Times, and you say it’s not enough to just get back to normal," he began. 

"You also write this, ‘The coronavirus has laid bare our domestic divisions unequal economy and glaring racial and socioeconomic disparities as well as the fragility of our democracy.’"

"Ambassador, how should the United States use this crisis right now to address some of those problems that you mentioned fully exposed by the virus?”

Rice responded:

“Well, Wolf, I say that going back to normal isn’t acceptable because what we’ve seen what was normal has been extraordinarily costly and deadly for all Americans."

"And yet what we’ve also learned from this experience and for many of us it wasn’t learning it, it was just making it very obvious to those perhaps who didn’t see it is that we have a society that remains extremely unequal, in racial and socioeconomic terms and so many other ways," she added.

"And yet as we have experienced throughout our history from frankly look at the Great Depression, look at World War II, look at the 1960s, out of every moment of crisis we have found a way to do things differently and better," Rice continued.

"The Works Progress Administration, the Civilian Conservation Corp in the Great Depression, the GI Bill after World War II, the Great Society, and the expansion and insurance of voting rights for all Americans in the 1960s.”

Rice added:

"This is a moment not only of crisis but inherent in that crisis is an opportunity."

"And we need to take a step to broaden our social safety net to ensure that the most vulnerable have the health care, have the education, have the housing that they need."

Earlier this month, Hillary Clinton called for voting reform in the form of mail-in voting.

Clinton said the United States needs to “act now” to ensure citizens can “safely cast a ballot in November."

“GOP officials and conservative jurists forced Wisconsin voters yesterday to choose between risking their lives to vote and being disenfranchised. It’s unconscionable,” she said.

“We need to act now to make sure every citizen can safely cast a ballot in November,” she added.

Meanwhile, several progressive groups funded by George Soros are pushing the Democrats' scheme to introduce mail-in voting ahead of this year's elections.

Soros' organizations are on the front lines of a campaign to introduce a “vote by mail” system in the upcoming presidential election.

Moreover, in the past four presidential elections, at least 28 million mail-in ballots mysteriously went missing and still remain unaccounted for.
