Politicians are prone to hyperbole, and anyone who has followed politics for longer than 10 minutes knows that.
But Republicans who are sounding the alarm on H.R. 1 and its companion bill in the Senate, S. 1, are not being melodramatic or resorting to exaggeration when they say this legislation will legitimately change how our country is governed for a generation, maybe more.
Per the Constitution, states are primarily responsible for governing elections, though our founding document also gives Congress authority to intervene. Historically, however, Congress (and the courts) have chosen to let states set their own rules and regulations as to how they will handle balloting.
However, led by the party’s Marxist faction, Democrats now want to turn centuries of constitutional precedence on its head and give Congress more authority in deciding election law. Why? Because Democrats want to rig the game in all future elections much the way they rigged it in 2020.
And that’s not hyperbole; that’s fact.
In a segment with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday, GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, a constitutional expert who has successfully argued cases before the U.S. Supreme Court as Texas solicitor general, sounded warning klaxons that every American who is legitimately concerned about the future viability of the country should heed.
Essentially, Democrats want to rig the game so that they can rule (not govern, rule) in perpetuity.
Calling S.1 “the single most dangerous piece of legislation before the United States Congress,” Cruz told Hannity “there’s kind of two buckets of what the Democrats are trying to do.”
One is bad policy. Things like massive new taxes, massive new spending, massive new regulations, all of those are going to hurt Americans all across the country. But there’s a second bucket that is really rigging the game, trying to change the rules so they never lose again.
And the crown jewel of the rigging-the-game proposals is the corrupt politicians act. Tomorrow in the Rules Committee in the Senate, we’re going to have a markup. I’ve got 46 amendments I’ve introduced that I’m going to force Democrats to vote on, one after the other after the other. Because you’re right, what this bill does, it’s a massive federal takeover of elections all across this country.
