ALERT: “For the People Act,” H.R. 1.

See that link at the very bottom of the page?  You can go there to send your Congressman an email telling him that we are counting on him to oppose this travesty and protect the people of Tennessee and of the nation.

Among other things, For the People Act would deter political free speech and federalize elections. This is one of the more bold-faced assaults on the First Amendment that has come through Congress in quite some time.

H.R. 1 is an ambitious effort by House Democrats to dictate the manner and outcome of elections in the United States.
It also prevents states from determining the qualifications of their own voters.

H.R. 1 would lift the ban on voting for convicted felons. The objection to this provision is not over its substance necessarily, but over its constitutionality.

H.R. 1 is also a dire threat to the Tenth Amendment. It authorizes a three-judge panel at the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia to redraw congressional districts.

H.R. 1 would also force political organizations to reveal their donors. In the landmark civil rights case, NAACP v. Alabama (1958), the Supreme Court ruled that the NAACP did not have to disclose its membership lists, as forcing them to do so would violate the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

H.R. 1 also broadens the definition of a “lobbyist,” which means even the most basic political action could now fall under the federal definition of lobbying.

H.R. 1 also strikes at the heart of separation of powers. It would allow Congress to create a commission to determine a “code of conduct” for judges of the Supreme Court. Not only is this a transparent attempt to start a bogus impeachment campaign against new Justice Brett Kavanaugh, but it is blatantly unconstitutional.
