Will moderate Democrats like Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema side with the Constitution or with their political party on this legislation? That outcome could decide American government and politics for the long term, as the bill, HR 1, tips the scales away from representative government and into the hands of the hard left wing of the Democrat Party. Republicans in the Senate will likely hold fast. It will be up to moderate Senate Democrats to save America on this one.
House Democrats united around the principles of destroying our election system once and for all.
If HR 1 becomes law, we will essentially be a one-party country.

FNC: “President Biden on Thursday celebrated the House passing a sweeping election reform bill, saying he would sign it if it passes the Senate. Biden called it ‘urgently needed’ to protect the right to vote and to “strengthen” democracy, and vowed to work with Congress to ‘refine and advance’ the legislation. The For the People Act of 2021, known as H.R. 1, passed Wednesday by a vote of 220 to 210. No Republicans joined with Democrats in approving the bill, H.R. 1. Biden went on.
“In the wake of an unprecedented assault on our democracy; a coordinated attempt to ignore, undermine, and undo the will of the American people never before seen in our history; and a new wave of aggressive attacks on voting rights taking place in states across the country, I applaud Speaker Pelosi and the House of Representatives for passing H.R. 1, the For the People Act of 2021…It will rein in the outrageous gerrymandering that distorts our democracy. It will empower the Justice Department to crack down on laws that curtail voting rights along racial lines. It will reform our campaign finance system to amplify the voices of the people — not the powerful. And it will modernize and secure our future elections against all manner of threats.” He’s lying through his teeth.
“I look forward to working with Congress to refine and advance this important bill,” Biden concluded. “And I look forward to signing it into law after it has passed through the legislative process, so that together we can strengthen and restore American democracy for the next election and all those to come.” A more blatant pack of lies has never been uttered by an American president. The Democrats know they may lose their majorities in 2022, so they want to legislate their way into a permanent majority now.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell correctly nailed the bill as “exactly the wrong response to the distressing lack of faith in our elections. Democrats want to use their temporary power to try to ensure they’ll never have to relinquish it.”
