TED CRUZ SAVES AMERICA
In the dead of the night, around 3:30 AM, Chuck Schumer tried to sneak in a vote on HR1-SR1 by unanimous consent.
HR1-SR1 is the Democrat’s dream bill that essentially federalizes elections across the country. All those shady vote-by-mail rules we used during Covid that helped Democrats steal the 2020 election? Those would become permanent. VoterID laws in states like Georgia and Wisconsin? Those would be banned.
So while the nation was sleeping Chuck Schumer, in his infinite sleaziness, called for a unanimous consent vote on the bill. [Unanimous consent means a vote isn’t needed, as long as no one objects to Schumer].
Ted Cruz didn’t hesitate. He objected. Here’s the full text of his objection:
“This bill would constitute a federal government takeover of elections. It would constitute a massive power grab by Democrats. It would disenfranchise millions of Americans and it would do precisely the opposite of its nominal title, ‘For The People.’ It is, instead, for the politicians because it entrenches politicians and ensures that the people cannot vote them out of office. It would strike down virtually every reasonable voter integrity law in the country, including voter I.D. laws supported by the overwhelming majority of this country, including prohibitions on ballot harvesting, again widely supported by people in this country. It would mandate that felons be allowed to vote, and it would automatically register millions of illegal aliens to vote. It would profoundly undermine democracy in this country, and for that reason, I object.”
