Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz delivered an epic denunciation of the Democrat election bill, the “For the People Act,” which has advanced to the Senate Rules Committee after it passed the Nancy Pelosi-led Democrat House.
The bill is a top priority for Democrats who seek to radically change the American election process to cement in law the kinds of tactics that Democrats employed during the 2020 presidential election, where paper ballots in cities like Atlanta, Philadelphia and Milwaukee swung the official outcome against President Donald Trump. Some Democrats and leftists have suggested or outright called for ending the filibuster in the U.S. Senate to cram through the Democrat agenda, including their election bill. But Ted Cruz is not having it.
“This bill mandates ballot harvesting. It mandates party operatives being able to go into nursing homes, collect every ballot there, throw out the ballots they don’t like, because there’s no supervision over the ballot harvesting,” Ted Cruz railed. Cruz said that Democrats are finding opportunity for fraud and saying “Let’s do more of that.”
“This bill has rightly been called the Corrupt Politicians Act, because it is designed to keep corrupt politicians in office and everyone supporting it should be ashamed,” Cruz said.
