The completely predictable has happened.
A by-the-skin-of-their-teeth Democrat majority in D.C. is going to try and ram through an abomination of an election bill.
In part, the bill H.R. 1 will be a retread of Nancy Pelosi’s similarly number measure from 2019, which seeks to make permanent some of the maladministration of the 2020 election.
An attempt to enshrine into law rules that destabilized the republic is abhorrent behavior. The called for changes are correctly viewed as removing safeguards against fraud.
Pelosi would like vote-by-mail universal, end voter ID, invalidate state election laws, and end signature verification for starters.
The left isn’t interested in the future as it wasn’t during 2020 in the running free and fair from fraud elections. Its only aims are power, and rigging the game is the only way that happens.
This is no way to build back trust in American elections. Pelosi’s gambit is a sure-fire way to undermine trust further and lead to more contention.
To borrow a phrase from the woke, the bill is violence.
This and other policy proposals’ net effect will be worse than Obamacare for the party in power. That this isn’t already accounted for is unlikely and is a good indicator of the party’s prospects moving forward.
Still, there will need to be reform efforts at the state level to set up a bulwark against these and other federal government abuses.
