Gift taxpayer dollars to the campaigns of career politicians.
The bill includes nearly the same campaign funding scheme from H.R. 1 , where taxpayers would provide up to a 600% match for political donations under $200.
For example, a $200 donation to a House candidate would garner a $1,200 match in taxpayer funds for a total contribution of $1,400. This could put taxpayers on the hook for billions.
H.R. 4: The “Election Suppression” Act
The “Election Suppression” Act would consolidate control over elections in Washington, DC, trampling on the right of states to effectively administer their own elections.
The “Election Suppression” Act would destroy commonsense, state-level election integrity reforms like those we’ve seen in Georgia, Florida, Texas, and Arizona.
The “Election Suppression” Act is separate from Senate Democrats’ other election bill, the "Freedom to Cheat” Act.
The “Election Suppression” Act would eviscerate the right of states to manage their own elections with transparency and ballot-security safeguards. It would misuse the 1965 Voting Rights Act called “pre-clearance” to achieve this goal.
Democrats want to force states to get permission from Washington, DC to pass local laws which might, for example, require voter ID -- a policy which polls consistently findroughly 80% of Americans supporting.
Joe Biden and Democrats want their politicized Department of Justice to control how states manage their own elections.
Democrats are trying to revive an outdated, unconstitutional provision from the 1960s in their stop-at-nothing efforts to undermine election integrity.
The bill targets states who try to clean up voter rolls, handcuffing local officials who attempt to keep their voter lists up-to-date and accurate.
For example, the bill would prohibit states from participating in an inter-state accountability process to ensure accurate lists.
The bill would also force federal courts to take inaccurate census data and subject every existing strict voter ID requirement to Department of Justice review.
Voters agree: states know best how to run their own elections.
68% of voters believe that state legislatures should decide the voting rules and regulations for their state.
Democrats are showing a total disregard for state and local governments in their desperate attempts to gain power.
