Chuck Schumer attempted to fundamentally change America’s system of voting.
But it didn’t turn out the way he planned at all.
Chuck Schumer felt sick when his own attack backfired against him horrifically.
The Democrats don’t have the Senate majority that they would need to carry out their agenda.
This is incredibly lucky for the American people.
If Democrats had the power they would overturn American elections completely and federally mandate measures that would make election fraud simple with their “For the People Act.”
However, the measure failed to get the 60 votes needed for the bill to move forward in the Senate as the vote split 50-50 along party lines and the Republicans proceeded to filibuster the bill.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called the Republican opposition to the bill “indefensible,” adding that they were on the side of “voter suppression.”
On Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the election measures that the Democrats tried to pass as similar to Jim Crow laws.
“We’ve heard the Senate Majority Leader invoke in booming terms specters from our sorry history of racial discrimination in the past,” Cruz said. “The Senate Majority Leader has used the phrase Jim Crow 2.0 repeatedly, as has the President of the United States, as has the Vice President of the United States, deliberately inflaming racial tensions, suggesting that laws, commonsense voter integrity laws in states like Georgia and Texas, things like requiring voter ID or requiring signature verification and absentee ballots are somehow a modern manifestation of Jim Crow.
“That is a grotesque lie, and Mr. President, the majority leader knows that,” Cruz continued. “The President of the United States knows that. The Vice President of the United States. They know they’re lying. But ironically, they’ve inadvertently said something that is accurate about this piece of legislation. Jim Crow legislation was grotesque and ugly. It was legislation that was drafted without exception by Democratic politicians. Jim Crow was written by Democratic politicians, and its purpose, when the Jim Crow laws were written, were to prevent the voters from ever voting out of office Democratic politicians. One of the ugliest chapters of our nation’s history. And thankfully, we repudiated Jim Crow.
“Well, the majority leader used the phrase Jim Crow 2.0 and inadvertently he’s right, but not about what he’s describing,” Cruz concluded. “He’s right about the ‘Corrupt Politicians Act.’ The ‘Corrupt Politicians Act’ follows the exact same pattern that Jim Crow did. It is partisan legislation written by elected Democrats, designed to keep elected Democrats in office and to steal the right to vote from the citizenry to decide on somebody else.”
