Report: Democrat unity behind HR 1 is collapsing

In the wake of the highly contested and controversial 2020 presidential election, Democrats have seized the opportunity engage in a radical overhaul of the way in which Americans vote, but a new report suggests that the coalition required to move the initiative forward to final adoption is beginning to crack.

According to The New York Times, infighting has broken out among Democrats regarding just how far they ought to go in order to achieve the expansive electoral reform agenda exemplified by the House-passed For the People Act, in a development that threatens to derail what some Republicans have referred to as a “monstrosity” that “betrays the Constitution…and undermines the integrity of the ballot box.”

While Democrat leaders — with the full support of President Joe Biden – have committed themselves to passing the Senate version of H.R. 1, legislation they claim will eliminate barriers to voting, end partisan gerrymandering, and establish a system of public campaign financing, Republicans have warned that the bill eradicates “nearly every guardrail that preserves the sanctity of the ballot box today” and amounts to “opening the floodgates for almost anyone to submit a ballot, or even multiple ballots, regardless of eligibility.”

Some Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) have portrayed passage of the overhaul as akin to the critical civil rights battle of our time, suggesting that “Failure is not an option,” perhaps portending a willingness to take dramatic procedural steps to ensure success.

However, given the current composition of the Senate and the fact that there is zero Republican support for the legislation, Democrats must obtain the votes of all of its party’s 50 senators and also eliminate longstanding filibuster rules, hurdles Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has previously said he would not necessarily help them clear.

According to the Times, Manchin explained his reservations about taking such drastic steps in the realm of election law, something generally left to state legislatures, saying, “pushing through legislation of this magnitude on a partisan basis may garner short-term benefits, but will inevitably only exacerbate the distrust that millions of Americans harbor against the U.S. government.”

As such, some Democrats have begun pushing for the bill to be split into separate pieces that may have a greater chance of passage, something that has laid bare the serious divisions with the party itself. Thus far, however, resistance to such a strategy has been signaled by powerful voices including that of Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), chair of the upper chamber’s Rules Committee.

The Times suggests that other sources of dissension include concerns from Black legislators who are wary of the bill’s move toward independent congressional redistricting commissions as well as worries expressed by moderate Democrats who believe that the bill’s small-dollar public financing scheme could leave them vulnerable to primary battles launched by their far-left flank.

Though the specter of the Democrats’ behemoth election law overhaul is undeniably horrifying, the internecine disputes and procedural roadblocks that currently exist offer Republicans real hope that it will ultimately go down to defeat.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

I’ve got to ask. I am not a Lawyer but isn’t there a way that WE THE PEOPLE could some how bring some kind of Legal Action against this Administration for the damage to our National Security and the harm that is being delt to the citizens of OUR country that is fully evident?? Just one example but we are being told what we can and can’t do yet they are allowing THOUSANDS into our country everyday and releasing many of them. Just that alone is endangering the lives of all of us.

Personally I think suing the administration and the congress is a waste of time. That white house belongs to WE THE PEOPLE NOT THE ADMINISTRATION. THE ONLY WAY THIS IS GONNA END IS WITH THE PEOPLE TAKING OVER THE GOVERMEBT BESIDES IT IS OURS. THE ELECTED OFFICIALS NEED TO BE PUT IN THEIR PLACE AND A COURT IS NOT GONNA DO IT. THEY HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING FOR WE THE PEOPLE!!

NO NO NO, NOT SUE, we need to DEMAND LEGAL ACTION!!! He is and has broken Laws and most all of them can be proven. His Administration is filled with racist people who are actually violating the CIVIL RIGHTS ACT of 1964 and that too can be proven. They are openly violating the Constitution and THAT can be proven.

The President can be impeached or the use of the 25th amendment to remove him from office but then we get the cackler whose only political experience was a year in the senate. She had political jobs because she was the mistress of Willy Brown former mayor of S.F. CA.. If the Republicans can take the House and get a few more seats in the Senate in the vote in Nov, 21 we should be ok. You cannot bring charges against a sitting president and I am sure the Demomarxists and the politicized FBI will hide what the international multi billion crooked deals were done with the Princeling Hunter used by Joe as the bag man and money launderer.. They need to do deep forensics to see where all the Biden Clan of Grifters fortunes are held internationally .Joe is in the pockets of the CCP Chinese Commie Party. The Biden’s have compromised our military.

Thank you, Michael. You wrote very clearly what I’ve been trying to verbalize yet have been unsuccessful probably due to my frustration of the lack of ethics and leadership in DC. While some would (correctly) say to vote people out during the next cycle, to me that’s the point — it’s “the next cycle.” With all of the tremendous damage that’s been done since January, I don’t believe the nation will survive until then. Indeed, one has to ask why all of the EOs are jammed through instead of respectfully using the Congressional system put into place by the Founding Fathers. One has to wonder why this is being done in this way while the d’s fully understand what occurred during the election and recent polls. I live in a border state and I think it’s now up to the states to determine how their border is handled. DC doesn’t care about the incredible destruction that’s being done to otherwise stable, functioning locales and the human catastrophe that we could be up against very soon with AZ desert temperatures now at the 100° mark. Yes, it’s time for WE THE PEOPLE to fully awaken and somehow figure out what we can do. I’m personally tired of writing emails to my Congressmen and Governor only to receive that stupid “thank you” response. I’m an “elder” and don’t even really know how to rudely get their attention. Help!

We hope that they will wake up to the risk and the law suits, that will result in ending states rights to decide for themselves, in voting requirements. They have stopped representing the people. The danger in H. R. I is the removal of showing personal I.D., and length of residence to vote. Instant registration with no I.D. allows for gangs or groups to go from area to area altering outcomes, which we experienced in 2020. GA. was right to take control of their voting process.

I don’t get it either. I’m basically disgusted with the lack of rational thought processes among “others.”
When I got my 1st voting card, I had to show proof of citizenship (different than ID then) and had to read aloud a couple of lines from the Constitution. For those who’d complain about that, it was to show we could read the ballot and likely had some kind of ability to understand, digest, and choose a candidate. It was a very big deal. Now, one can get a gift card in exchange for a vote. No wonder we’re where we’re at. But I have tremendous hope…

IT’s TIME TO DITCH THE WITCH, NANCY PELOSI!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER! Can we seriously sit back, do nothing, and allow this vile, evil person to continue her senior role in destroying our country and stripping us little by little of our constitutional rights?

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

Only they’re not children., we’re not their parents, and there is no punishment for breaking the rules because they’ve taken care of the legal systems, too. If only they could be exposed for who they really are and people could see where they got there controlling wealth from. We goofed but only because we put trust in those we elected.

This is nothing more than a huge “power grab” by the Democrats. They want felons and illegals to vote and this is a way that it could be done. No checks and balances, no signature verification, no photo ideas and you don’t even have to show up to vote. I’m not too sure that the Constitution grants this change in power and I don’t think the States are going to be too excited about the governments overreach. You can bet that the Republicans and every Constitutional supporter (Patriot) is going to fight it. The Democrats really are looking for a civil war aren’t they?

The 25th is a no-brainer (woops!!). Even if he were to go, the group is still there. I wonder how one gets rid of the two of them. He’s slapping out EOs, she’s doing nothing, they’re both absolutely ignoring We the People. I’m thinking that avoiding a catastrophe in the AZ border state could very soon become impossible since the desert temperatures have now hit 100°.

Thanks for persevering in sending your “clips–” I’m working my way through them. I slowly figured out that they’ve been throwing junk at us for as long as I can remember (1950’s). I always thought it was normal but normal was to leave people and the Earth alone and everything would eventually work out, be in balance. I believe that the ds has to keep us in a constant state of turmoil, chaos, fear in order to achieve their goal of singular world control. I’d love to see them captured and tried for trea**n and their wealth distributed among all of those who unknowingly “gave” it to them through taxes.
