Big Win For GOP Shuts Down Liberal Loophole
Progressives are upset that the GOP still has the power to stop them. They hate that Sen Manchin refused to get rid of the filibuster. But it is one of the few tools the minority party has to stop the other party from ramming through partisan bills. So the GOP used the filibuster to stop Dems from potentially making it legal for illegals to vote in our elections.
"Senate Republicans on Tuesday used their filibuster power to block debate on Democrats’ sweeping federal elections bill, dealing a fatal blow to one of President Biden’s early major agenda items.
The measure failed in a 50-50 vote along party lines. However, even without Republicans’ use of the filibuster, the bill would have failed to pass as Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia voted to advance to debate but said he would vote against the measure unless a number of changes were made.
“This is a battle for the soul of America,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said. “We will keep fighting until we succeed.”
Ahead of the vote, a number of Democrats acknowledged that the test vote to advance the so-called “For the People Act” was sure to fail in the face of solid Republican opposition. The measure would have needed to garner 60 votes to advance.
Earlier on Tuesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said, “What we are measuring, I think, is, is the Democratic Party united? We weren’t as of a couple of weeks ago.”
McConnell commented about how the GOP shut the Dems down.
"Look what this is really about is an effort for the federal government to take over the way we conduct elections in this country. It is a solution in search of a problem.
Finally today we will put an end to it here in the Senate. The American people can be relieved that the federal government — at least in this area — is not going to expand and supplant the states, which have been involved in conducting elections throughout the history of our country.”

There is no coherent rationale for a federal takeover of elections in all 50 states.

"One of the least-discussed elements of the U.S. House-passed For the People Act is how it could potentially allow illegal immigrants to vote in U.S. elections. It’s yet another move by Democrats to permanently rig the rules of American elections in their favor.
The so-called voting rights bill requires states to automatically add to their voter registration rolls every person — regardless of their voter eligibility — who partake in government programs, such as welfare, university financial aid or Medicare. This could add hundreds of thousands of ineligible voters to the rolls, leading to a massive blow to our election integrity and security.
Although illegal immigrants are ineligible to receive most federal welfare, they can receive emergency medical assistance under Medicaid and “short-term, non-cash emergency aid,” provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and disaster-relief cash assistance through state, local and voluntary programs, leading to them potentially being added to the state’s voter rolls, through automatic registration, like the For the People Act requires."
Tucker Carlson brought awareness to the Dems intention to fluff their electorate and they were outraged, claiming he was a racist. But now we see that he was right. They are actively trying to make it so they can accept votes from illegals. That's why they created the border crisis.
