The For the People Act automatically registers millions of illegal aliens and mandates that felons be allowed to vote — and in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, Senate Democrats attempted to sneak it through right after the $3.5 trillion budget vote. Fortunately, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) blocked that effort. This was an important vote for Senator Cruz: to stop a federal government takeover of elections and a massive power grab by Democrats. Its Orwellian title, “For the people”, means precisely the opposite. The bill is solely for the politicians because it entrenches their political power. Cruz, to his credit, likely prevented a one-party takeover of government. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) brought the “For The People” act, which critics say amounts to a federal takeover of elections, to the floor around 3:30 a.m., after the Senate had concluded 15 hours of amendment votes on a $3.5 trillion budget resolution. According to the Houston Chronicle, it was then, in the middle of the night when many might have been too tired to pay attention, that Schumer sought to pass the federal overhaul of elections by unanimous consent.
