Warning: H.R.1 is the building block for a 'Blue' nation

'Blue' U.S. mapA conservative political analyst says a piece of legislation being brought up again by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn't bode well for Republicans.

Following what millions of voters argue was a stolen election that put Joe Biden in the White House, Democrats are now poised to solidify their grip on power in America's capital. Pelosi, the lead Democrat in the U.S. House, has announced her commitment to passing H.R.1, which is known as the For the People Act of 2019.

The measure passed in the House in early March 2019, but has since languished in the Senate. That's less likely to happen this time around in the Senate with a 50-50 split and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris holding the tie-breaking vote.

Rob Chambers, vice president of AFA Action, explains that H.R.1 – if passed – would federalize and micromanage elections at the state level.

"What Nancy Pelosi is wanting to do is to pass federal legislation that will come in and micromanage state election procedures," he shares. "She wants to seize the authority of the states to regulate voter registration, opening up early voting, automatic voter registration, same-day registration, online registration – and who knows? It may even be online voting."

In fact, the Democracy Reform Task Force highlights what it considers benefits of H.R.1, including national automatic voter registration, "democracy reform," early and online voting, along with other "voting modernization" measures.

According to Chambers, the ultimate result would be that Democrats could control more states. "And you thought you saw problems in Georgia going from Red to Purple to Blue?" he wonders. "I would predict you're going to see that trend in every state as a consequence of this."

Chambers adds that the Democrat-controlled government could stack the Supreme Court with left-leaning justices to make sure no legal challenge to H.R.1 can succeed.

Endorsers of H.R.1 include many liberal groups, such as the Center for American Progress, People for the American Way, Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Democracy Matters, Common Cause, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, and the League of Conservation Voters.
