Ever since President Biden was elected, Democrats have made it their top priority to re-elect themselves. First there was H.R. 1, nicknamed “The Corrupt Politicians Act.” Today, the Senate is debating the nicknamed “Freedom to Cheat Act.” Really, it is the same thing as H.R. 1 as this graphic by Heritage Action illustrates:
As the Election Transparency Institute's Ken Cuccinelli stated:
“It’s often said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Call it cliché—but Democrats have made a believer out of me. Any rational observer can see that their continued attempts to force a Washington takeover of elections into law are failing because their unpopular policies are fundamentally far too radical, extreme, and harmful for Americans to stand. For years now, Democrats have continued their media-assisted ‘voter suppression’ myth to advance bills like S. 2747 despite continuing improvements in access to both registration and voting. In fact, it has never been easier to vote for every American than it is today—a fact of which we should all be proud.
“It should be easy to vote and hard to cheat in our elections. Unfortunately, Democrats want to override state election laws they don’t like for political gain, rig the system in their favor, and silence millions of American voices to ensure they can’t lose for the next 100 years—by gutting the 60-vote filibuster. We urge Republicans and every member of the Senate to reject this partisan legislation deceptively presented under the guise of ‘voting rights’ and instead support free and fair elections voters can trust.”
Not a single Republican supports these efforts to suppress speech and stop even the most modest and popular election integrity measures. As Republican leader Mitch McConnell said earlier today:
“This latest umpteenth iteration is only a compromise in the sense that the left and the far left argued among themselves about exactly how much power to grab in which areas.
“This latest bill still subjects popular, commonsense state election integrity protections like voter ID to the whims of federal bureaucrats.
“It still sends government money to political campaigns, for goodness sakes. It still puts Washington in the middle of the states’ redistricting decisions. And on and on.
“The same rotten core is all there.
“The Senate knows how to make law in a productive, bipartisan way. We’ve done it this year on multiple subjects. We have done it on election issues themselves in recent memory when there was an actual problem that needed solving and an actually bipartisan process.
“But as long as Senate Democrats remain fixated on their radical agenda, this body will continue to do the job the framers assigned it, and stop terrible ideas in their tracks.”
Please consider thanking Senate Republicans for standing strong and blocking this purely partisan and harmful takeover of our elections.
