Republican Senator Mike Lee did not hold back on his opinion of the Democrat’s “For the People” election reform bill-H.R. 1 during an interview with Fox News. Sen. Lee described the bill as a document “written in hell by the devil himself.”
The piece of legislation is the Democrat’s latest push to nationalize elections and strip Americans of their faith in the election process and is a disastrous affront on the First Amendment.
According to Fox News:
MIKE LEE: “I think I disagree with every single word in HR1, including the words ‘but,’ ‘and,’ and ‘the.’ Everything about this bill is rotten to the core. This is a bill as if written in hell by the devil himself. This takes all sorts of decisions that the federal government really has no business making. It takes them away from the states, makes them right here in Washington D.C. by Congress.
Apparently in an effort to ensure an institutionally, revolutionary-democratic party of sorts. One that can remain in power for many decades to come. It does this by taking away these decisions. Elections in America have always been conducted at the state and local levels…
They are completely flipping that principal on its head so that all these things can be micromanaged from Washington. That’s wrong. That’s really wrong, it’s bad policy. As much as anything else, it’s wildly unconstitutional.”
The bill seeks to enact automatic voter registration, peel away voter ID laws, and will surely dilute the votes of legally qualified voters.
