FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Majority Leader McConnell’s Decision to Refrain from Senate Floor Vote on H.R. 1

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) decision to not bring H.R. 1, the so-called “For The People Act,” up for a vote on the Senate floor, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“H.R. 1 is a blatant power grab cloaked in ‘anti-corruption’ by Democrats and Leader McConnell is right to refuse to bring this bad bill to the floor for a vote, should it pass the House. H.R. 1 should really be called the ‘For the Politicians Act’ because it does everything possible to make sure incumbent Democrats are re-elected. This bill is an assault on the First Amendment and would have a chilling effect on political speech. ”

FreedomWorks recently hosted a Facebook livestream with Reps. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) and Denver Riggleman (R-Va.) explaining why H.R. 1 would put an end to free elections.
