Dangerous legislation in the U.S. Senate as S. 1
Not a single provision in the deceitfully named “For the People Act” (S. 1) contains reforms that benefit “the People.” It is not comprised of articles of reform, but provisions for oppression of the public.
It should instead be named the “Corrupt Politicians Act.”
If passed, S. 1 would irrevocably change the very fundamental principles, practices and ideals upon which this country was founded and under which it has successfully stayed free for nearly 250 years.
State legislators should understand that this legislation strips them of their constitutional responsibilities and control of elections.
