Schumer Pushes Vote on Election Laws to Weaken Conservative States

On Thursday, Chuck Schumer announced there will be a debate and a vote on election laws next Wednesday.

“We cannot allow Conservative-controlled states to double down on their regressive and subversive voting bills,” Schumer said in a letter. “The Freedom to Vote Act is the legislation that will right the ship of our democracy and establish common sense national standards to give fair access to our democracy to all Americans.”

The New York Times reported:

In his letter, Mr. Schumer said that Democrats would also continue their internal negotiations to come up with a final version of a sweeping social safety net bill that has been slowed by differences between progressives and moderates over its cost and contents. He warned that lawmakers would need to make concessions to get a final measure.

“To pass meaningful legislation, we must put aside our differences and find the common ground within our party,” Schumer said. “As with any bill of such historic proportions, not every member will get everything he or she wants.”

Schumer said Senator Joe Manchin is part of the process, although he is still against breaking the filibuster.

“Senator Manchin has been engaged in conversations with our Republicans colleagues in hopes of advancing solutions on a bipartisan basis to ensure all Americans have their voice heard in our democracy,” Schumer wrote.

The Freedom to Vote Act, “which would expand voter access and boost election integrity, would make Election Day a public holiday, require same-day registration at all polling locations by 2024 and ensure at least 15 days of early voting for federal elections,” according to NBC News.

The text of the bill says that it is “[t]o expand Americans’ access to the ballot box and reduce the influence of big money in politics, and for other purposes.”

This is another power grab, an authoritarian move to eliminate all Republicans from any power and any voice. Mostly, it’s a federalization of elections. They want all power in the swamp in DC. If you don’t believe it, examine what they have put forward so far — The John Lewis Voting Rights Act and HR1/S1.

  1. O/T-hilarious meme of cattle rancher cowboys saying let’s go brandin and then they do some branding!
    Eat Sh1t fellow travelers of the derp state and useless idiot minions and shove your COV-LARP and not-a-vax right up your swamp.

    (h/t-AB)

  2. If this bill makes it through the senate, this nation is truly done for, barring a not so peaceful response from the patriots.
    Common sense tells us that almost everyone in this nation has the required ID to vote in any election at any time in any state. This all smoke and mirrors which needs to be thrown out by the states via the 10th Amendment…States Rights must prevail.
    Once again, the traitors in DC(district of corruption) are afraid of having fair elections and are trying to sabotage that process.
    It must be stopped and done quickly. Before the dem and rino crooks have a real chance to move it any further along in the process.
    Just sayin’.

  3. First thing is Chucky Boy doesn’t even know that our form of Government is a Constitutional Republic. He thinks it’s Mob Rule; a Democracy. Democrats have to destroy all controls to remove fraud from elections. Democrats can’t win elections and must steal power by stuffing ballot boxes, and redistributing wealth to just plan buy votes.
