Democrats move to start pushing voting rights and police reform through the House after passing COVID relief package
- House Democrats are moving on to voting rights and police reform after passing President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 relief package Saturday
- This week the House is expected to vote on the For the People Act, as well as the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act
- Both bills passed the House during the last Congress, but Democrats didn’t have control of the Senate nor the White House then
It works both ways in voting, it’s bullshit and we need to contact our representative and say, NO WAY! Let’s get into it!
The For the People Act was the first bill Democrats passed after taking the majority in January 2019.
Among other things, it expanded voting by allowing for same-day registration for federal elections.
It also made states provide early voting options and would establish automatic voter registration.
The bill also allows for more voting by mail. And would make Election Day a federal holiday.
So, same-day registration, okay that’s going to cause thousands of illegal votes, it works both ways. States are in charge, not the federal government.
New ethics rules included in the bill would mandate presidential and vice-presidential candidates release 10 years of income tax returns – something former President Donald Trump refused to do.
Come on really? Anybody can forge IRS documents, isn’t that right China Joe Biden?
The bill would have independent commissions redraw Congressional lines to put an end to the practice of gerrymandering.
Oh Please, we know all about the interference by the Great Reset’s George Soros!
The bill also tackles campaign finance reform.
Yes, the democrats figure that out by using black lives matter.
The bill is considered so toxic to Republicans that Trump, during his Sunday night Conservative Political Action Conference speech, went after it.
‘This monster must be stopped. It cannot be allowed to pass,’ the former president warned, also calling it a ‘disaster.’
Trump said the bill ‘effectively ends all registration deadlines.’
‘Can you believe this?’ he asked. ‘Requires states to give ballots to felons. Automatically registers every welfare recipient to vote and puts unaccountable unelected bureaucrats in charge of drawing congressional districts.’
We can’t make this shit up!
‘That’s going to be a lot of fun,’ he said, being sarcastic.
Sen. Jeff Merkley, an Oregon Democrat, told The Washington Post that Trump going off about it was proof that it needed to pass.
‘You heard it from Trump himself,’ Merkley said Monday. ‘We’ve got to get the For the People Act signed into law ASAP so the next elections are decided by the will of the voters, not rigged by corrupt politicians.’
Keep drinking the Koolaid!
In his CPAC speech, Trump continued to peddle the ‘big lie,’ telling the audience he had actually won the election when he did not.
He did and we all watched it happen
The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act was first passed by the House of Representatives on June 25, 2020 – exactly a month after the Minneapolis black man was killed by a white police officer, reinvigorating the Black Lives Matter movement.
Even though this man was wrongfully killed he wasn’t innocent by any means. Holding a gun against a pregnant black woman’s belly.
Then Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wouldn’t pick it up.
South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott and other GOP leaders introduced their own bill that didn’t go as far as to ban chokeholds, the way Floyd was killed.
It doesn’t help when the guy swallowed a lethal dose of Chinese fentanyl. It wasn’t a chokehold it was a knee to his throat.
That failed in a procedural vote in the Senate.
The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act provides federal oversight, bans chokeholds, makes federal forces use body and dashboard-cams, creates a federal database for police misconduct complaints, prohibits no-knock warrants among other measures.
Why become a cop when the criminals have the right to kill people.
In mid-June, Trump signed an executive order on police reform that activists also blasted for not going far enough.
In the aftermath of Floyd’s death, Trump, up for re-election, leaned into ‘Blue Lives Matter’ and ‘law and order’ messaging to counter the Black Lives Matter movement, turning it into a political wedge issue.
Our blue lives matter, they are there for domestic violence victims and now you will tie their hands and people will die.
