Monday Executive News Summary

GOP’s HR 1 counterattack, immigration bills hit snag, Leftmedia hypocrisy, and more.

Top of the Fold

  • “An all-hands moment”: GOP rallies behind noble effort to quash tyrannical HR 1 (AP)

“From statehouses to Washington, the fight over who can vote and how … has galvanized a Republican Party in search of [a] unifying mission in the post-Trump era. … Anti-abortion rights [read: pro-life] group, the Susan B. Anthony List, has partnered with another conservative Christian group to fund a new organization, the Election Transparency Initiative. FreedomWorks, a group formed to push for smaller government, has initiated a $10 million calling for tighter voting laws in the states. … Meanwhile, Heritage Action has announced a new effort also focused on changes in state voting laws. It included a $700,000 ad campaign to back GOP-written bills in Georgia, the group’s first foray into advocating for state policy. So far, the states have been the center of the debate. More than 250 bills have have been introduced in 43 states that would change how Americans vote.”

  • Democrats’ House immigration bills will hit snag in the Senate (Examiner)

“House Democrats easily passed two measures on Thursday that would provide a pathway to citizenship for up to 4 million people now living here illegally. Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Democrats plan to go even further in the coming months, with a broader amnesty bill proposed by Biden that would offer a means to obtain citizenship for all of the nation’s approximately 11 million illegal immigrants. … [Senate Majority Whip Richard] Durbin said he’s unsure if he can find bipartisan support to pass either of the two bills, never mind the much larger comprehensive package that would legalize 11 million people. Democrats control 50 votes and would need at least 10 GOP lawmakers to advance legislation due to the filibuster.”

Editor’s Note: In other words, the filibuster is once again an obstruction to the Democrat agenda, and will continue to be. Which is why Democrats, who once championed it, are now resorting to calling it “racist” and “undemocratic.”
