New Yorker Attempt To Dunk On Conservatives Further Shows Why H.R. 1 Is A Threat

The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer both mischaracterizes this bill to institutionalize the election errors and dangers that exploded in 2020 and misunderstands major reasons conservatives take issue with it.

 New Yorker Attempt To Dunk On Conservatives Further Shows Why H.R. 1 Is A Threat

Jane Mayer of The New Yorker strengthens the argument for why H.R. 1 is an awful piece of legislation.

In attempting to own conservatives by leaking partial audio of a presentation to Republicans by the director of research at a conservative nonprofit, staff writer Jane Mayer at The New Yorker further illuminates why H.R. 1 is a garbage proposal. Mayer misunderstands the Republican base’s argument completely and produces a straw man.

The March 29 report is based on audio from a Jan. 8 phone call in which Kyle McKenzie of Stand Together discusses the “For The People Act,” known as H.R. 1. The election bill passed in the House on March 3 at a vote of 220 to 210. The Democrats require a supermajority of 60 votes in the Senate to pass it and some seek to eliminate the filibuster to do so.

In the leaked call, McKenzie provides strategies to Republican congressional staffers on how the GOP ought to most effectively communicate to voters what the misguided legislation imposes. He grants that establishment GOP messaging has thus far failed to educate people enough about H.R. 1, and suggests those on the call provide thorough explanations and anecdotes to voters instead of engaging in “surface-level messaging” that is frankly common in political debates nowadays.

McKenzie notes the GOP has engaged in one-sided messaging on H.R. 1, instead of offering human stories and why the legislation will directly affect people. McKenzie also claims polling has shown support for the measure. While Democrats argue a Data for Progress poll in February that found 68 percent of “likely voters” would support this assertion, an Honest Elections Project poll in March showed 64 percent of respondents seek to protect laws fighting voter fraud.

McKenzie correctly points out H.R. 1 is a convoluted bill. Therefore, Americans do need to be offered specific ways it would affect their lives, not fed repetitive lectures from Republican operatives on socialism or the like.

The Republicans aren't engaging the right messaging on the Democrats Never Lose Again Bill?  aka the Illegal Aliens Count More Than You Do Bill?
The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.
