Now that it has been revealed that a bipartisan majority of senators oppose President Biden’s Big Government Socialism Bill, Democrats are pivoting to federalize our elections and are willing to transform the world’s greatest deliberative body into a rubber stamp for the White House to accomplish it.
Amid a barrage of conspiracy theories and falsehoods by fear-mongering, Democrats are once again pushing the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and Freedom to Vote Act, a supposed compromise bill.
The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act would require every state to get the Biden Department of Justice’s permission to implement overwhelmingly popular election integrity reforms like voter ID by resurrecting antiquated pre-clearance requirements. Essentially this would make unelected partisan bureaucrats like Attorney General Merrick Garland the king of United States election laws.
The Freedom to Vote Act is no compromise at all. It is nearly identical to H.R. 1, better known as the “Corrupt Politicians Act.” If passed, this bill would facilitate a federal takeover of our elections, attack the First Amendment, and funnel taxpayer dollars to the reelection campaigns of career politicians.
Under no circumstances should Democrats be allowed to dismantle the institutions of our Republic and undermine the integrity of our elections. States like Georgia, Texas, Florida, and Arizona are leading the way to secure our elections; we should be embracing their reforms rather than working to dismantle them.
FreedomWorks will count the vote for H.R. 5746 on our 2022 Congressional Scorecard and reserves the right to score any amendments, motions, or other related votes. The scorecard is used to determine eligibility for the FreedomFighter Award, which recognizes Members of the House and Senate who consistently vote to support economic freedom and individual liberty.
