house Bill H.R. 1

For the People Act: Reforming Campaign Finance, Gov't Ethics, and Voter Protection Laws

Argument in favor

The current political system is broken, corrupt, and badly in need of reform. This ambitious bill restores the promise of government for and by the people by ending money’s influence in politics, re-enfranchising felons, strengthening voter protections, making it easier to vote, and more.

It’s incredibly sad that this bill is DUA on the Senate floor. Have the long fingers of corruption wrapped itself so tightly around the votes of our Senate that to do the right thing has been blinded by money signs? It seems that as with #45, ‘transparency’ has become a four letter word with our representatives!

Argument opposed

Some of this bill’s provisions overreach beyond the limits of what Congress is constitutionally allowed to do, as it undermines Americans' First Amendment rights to political speech and would have a chilling effect on public discourse. Not only that, but the bill isn't going anywhere in the Senate.

This bill to change voter laws are mostly negative. Forcing people to be registered and protecting ineligible voters. This bill needs to be voted down. This bill opens way too many loopholes for illegal voting.

👎🏻👎🏻 H.R.1 = the “Democrat Politician Protection Act.” 👎🏻👎🏻 House Bill H.R.1 AKA the For the People Act Although Democrats are promoting HR 1 as a bill that would ‘strengthen our democracy and return political power to the people,’ it is an anti-democratic bill that would wreak havoc on our election system by manipulating election rules in favor of Democrats. It is nothing but a progressive power grab, and all Republicans in Congress should vote against it.” * It’s apparent that the House Bill H.R.1 AKA the For the People Act is a flagrant attempt by the Pelosi lead House to fandango the entire voting system in the Democratic favor by allowing not only illegal but also unauthorized individuals to vote which is a privilege accorded to USA 🇺🇸 CITIZENS only. * I’d be opposed to the requirement that states be required to make online voter registration, correction, cancellation, and designation of party affiliation available online. This requirement will most assuredly lead to fraudulent and illegal voters and activities to occur. * State election officials would be required to automatically register any eligible unregistered citizens to vote, while protecting ineligible voters who were mistakenly registered from prosecution; and state agencies and federal offices within states would be considered as contributing agencies for the purposes of registration. * Their desire that States be required to permit same-day registration for federal elections, including during early voting 🗳 would lead to suspect voters occurring. * States’ authority to remove registrants from official voter rolls in federal elections on the basis of interstate voter registration cross-checks would allow the probably of individuals to conduct multiple, as seen in the past, not only in-state, but also cross state-line voting 🗳 to occur. * I’m in agreement with the requirement thatAnnual state reports on voter registration statistics, be required to be provided to the, Election Assistance Commission (EAC). * Help America Vote Act funds would be available for use in voter registration modernization reforms. * I agree that It should be unlawful to hinder, interfere with, or prevent an individual citizens registration to vote; and the EAC should be instructed to develop best practices for states to deter and prevent illegal voter registration in occurring. * This is just another Democratic ploy in swinging elections their way. * I’m also in agreement with why should the 5 states with the largest populations decide the election? There are surely more democrats in New York, California, Illinois, Ohio and Michigan, than the bottom 25 states total populations combined. How convenient that those 5 states are predominantly democrat. They strangely also all have a huge illegal migrants populations. * Some of this bill’s provisions overreach are far beyond the limits of what Congress is constitutionally is allowed to do, as it undermines Americans' First Amendment rights to political speech and would have a chilling effect on public discourse. Not only that, but the bill isn't going anywhere in the Senate. This Bill is nothing more than a thinly baled attempt by the Democrats to usurp the voting process to,their favor for the 2020 and future elections. SneakyPete......... 👎🏻😡👎🏻😡👎🏻. 3*6*19........

    This is exactly the sort of strengthening of voting rights that the Democratic House should be fighting for and fighting hard. I am incredibly happy to see this important package of laws introduced as HR1 in this session.

    This is one of the most important pieces of legislation to go before Congress in years. It is critically important that our election systems are reformed to better give the people a voice and remove dangerous corporate cash from our democracy. Please, I urge you, push for this bill with all of your might. This needs to pass. This must become law. The future of democracy is at stake and this bill is hanging in the balance. Vote yes!

    It’s a shame that we have to pass voter protection laws but we have an obligation to our democracy, to each other, and this great experiment to ensure that the principles of the Declaration of Independence are protected from the political machinations of those whose goal is political power at any cost. “We hold these truths to be self evident that all men (mankind) are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It Does NOT Say: 1. All men are created equal as long as their like me. 2. Everyone one has the right to their opinion as long as it agrees with mine. 3. Everyone has the right to pursue there own happiness as long as I’m not offended by it. 4. You can do anything you want as long as Nothing you do has Any impact on me what so ever including how I feel about it. "To whom much is given, from him much is expected" is the least this sentence needs to stand on its own. I’m not a Christian but for those on the right the Christian Bible does it better, "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required," Luke 12:48 in the King James Version. This is an OBLIGATION we all share. It past time we codify the protections into law. And I would go one step further and say codify it into the constitution.
