GOP Sen. Kennedy Rips ‘For The People Act’ As ‘Screw The People Act’ – ‘Will Make It Easier To Cheat’

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) went on Fox News to blast the so-called “For the People Act,” which Democrats claim will expand voting rights.

Kennedy Trashes Voting Rights Bill

Kennedy held nothing back as he trashed the bill, describing it as “extraordinarily cynical” and saying that it “will make it much easier to cheat.” He also said that the bill “would be more aptly described as ‘Screw the People Act.”

“[T]his is an extraordinarily cynical bill, in my opinion, even by Washington standards. It’s very ruthless, even by Washington standards,” Kennedy said. “Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer call it, I think, the ‘For the People Act’ but I think it would be more aptly described as ‘Screw the People Act.’”

“It will make it much easier to cheat in an election. And their bill does that in two ways,” he continued. “Number one, it almost guarantees that we’ll never have another Election Day. We’ll have election months. And I think that was the genesis of a lot of concern by many people in the last election.”

Kennedy Doubles Down

“Number two, it achieves its purpose by taking elections, which are governed by the people through their state legislatures right now, and gives that authority to the federal government,” Kennedy explained. “Now, why anybody would take something that’s working and give it to the federal government is beyond me. The federal bureaucracy can’t even stop scam calls or spam calls.”

“But nonetheless, if you turn our voting procedure over to the federal government, I guarantee you the first thing they are going to do is get rid of voter I.D., and I think most Americans believe that you should have to prove who you say you are when you go to vote,” he concluded.

The “For The People Act” has the full support of Joe Biden’s administration and would nationalize election laws. It remains to be seen if they will be successful in passing the bill, as Republicans can use the filibuster to stop it. Despite using the filibuster multiple times just last year, Democrats are now suddenly against the practice.
