Iranian Election Hypocracy

The US House passed a resolution on the election in Iran, which amongst other things:
affirms the universality of individual rights and the importance of democratic and fair elections

These same politicians are responsible for suppressing free elections in the US through ballot access restrictions, limiting debate, campaign finance manipulation, and run-of-the-mill corruption.

The hyprocracy is amazing. It wouldn't supprise me if it is easier to win a contested election in Iran than it is here.
