The United States Senate will vote Tues, June 22, 2021 on S.1 “We the People” (LOL) and Democrats plan to challenge the 60 vote cloture rule.  Please send your email to other Democrats that appear to be non-committal.

NBC News reportsDemocrats face filibuster stress test on key voting bill. It's not just Manchin and Sinema.  The worst-kept secret in Washington is that those two moderate senators aren’t alone in opposing nuking the 60-vote threshold.

The NBC article identifies the following Democrat senators who are non-committal.

Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz.
Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H.
Sen. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt

One America News published an article titled:  Proposed bill H.R.1. gives Congress total authority over future elections.  The article summary states:  Democrats in Congress are rushing to push through a radical new bill that would give Congress ultimate authority over all future elections.  One America’s Pearson Sharp explains how the bill, known as H.R.1., will make voting fraud all but guaranteed.  To hear the full report click here

Fox News published an article titled:  West Virginia AG rips Democrats' election reform bill as 'unconstitutional,' 'welfare for politicians.'  The article reports in part:

The massive election reform measure that House Democrats passed this week is "welfare for politicians" and "seeks to undermine voter ID laws," among other "dangerous and unconstitutional" measures, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey told "America Reports" on March 5, 2021.

Morrisey recently joined 20 Republican state attorneys general in signing a letter denouncing the "For the People Act" hours before it passed the House Wednesday. The measure aims to expand access to the polls, fight partisan gerrymandering and set up new public funding for congressional races.

MORRISEY SAID:  This is a very dangerous bill, and at its core, this is a major power grab by Congress and by Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi. If you look at the Constitution, the Constitution lays out how elections are going to be set forth. There's obviously some role for the federal government in a number of the elections. There's a primary role for the state government. This bill is trying to wipe out a significant amount of the state's role in managing elections. What is that going to do? Number one, it's going to undermine voter ID, which I think is critical, and it helps to reduce fraud. It's in place in 35 states...

Number two, it's actually going to limit the state's ability to take inactive voters off the rolls once again, to provide more confidence to the American public that people who shouldn't be voting aren't actually getting to the polls if they're ineligible. And it also will chill free speech. This is welfare for politicians. It should not pass the U.S. Senate. If it does, I'm prepared to file a lawsuit to make sure that this unconstitutional legislation is struck down."

Congressman Thomas Massie wrote a letter to his constituents that states in part “H.R. 1 infringes upon free speech, would establish a federal takeover of the election process, and would force taxpayers to fund political campaigns.  It now awaits action in the Senate.”

Suggested content:

Dear Senator (enter last name),

Please vote against S.1 For the People Act which legalizes election changes that would be fraudulently exploited resulting in widespread anarchy, oppressing individual rights and devastating voter trust.  Please support and maintain the 60 vote cloture rule which protects all Americans from extremist legislation that favors some people at the expense of others.

Thank you.
