[Ed. – Democrats need every vote, but they won’t back off from their attempts to become the sole party in D.C.]

Mississippi’s Rep. Bennie Thompson did something remarkable in Wednesday’s House vote to pass H.R.1, the For the People Act. He was the sole Democrat to vote for his state.

Republicans are describing the bill, which would impose voting requirements on the states, as a federal “power grab.” It’s better described as a surrender. Democrats are selling out their own states’ interests.

The left and the media describe H.R.1 as a “voting rights” and “campaign finance” reform. It’s actually an unprecedented federal effort to dictate state voting rules. The bill would strip states of their authority to decide methods of balloting, election deadlines and most aspects of election security. It would mandate mail-in voting, impose registration rules, dictate ballot-return dates, and void identification standards. It even limits states’ ability to draw congressional districts.
