Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blocked an attempt by Senate Democrats to push through a federal election overhaul bill early Wednesday morning.In the dead of night, Schumer sought to pass the federal overhaul of elections by unanimous consent, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Democrats are pushing another federal takeover of elections with the so-called John Lewis Voting Right Advancement Act. This one is a power grab forcing states to get permission from the Democrat-controlled federal government before implementing election integrity measures like voter ID and other constitutional safeguards.
After a careful review of the For the People Act (H.R. 1 / S. 1) currently awaiting action in the U.S. Senate, American Constitutional Rights Union Action Fund has concluded this intentionally complex and confusing legislation not only puts the rights of every American voter at risk, but silences many American voices while elevating the “free speech” of politicians over that of their constituents.
