Joe Biden and the Democrats are making it up as they go along without any recourse to truth or reason. Rep. Drew Ferguson, Republican of Georgia, uncovers their slimy tracks when it comes to voting rights.
Sen. Tim Scott: Biden's voting rights speech was 'offensive' to me as a Southerner and an Americanhttps://t.co/p41gamfSc3

Ferguson: With Democrats in control of the House of Representatives, Senate and White House for nearly a year, Americans have suffered through crisis after crisis: inflation at its highest level in 40 years, rampant crime devastating cities across the nation, a complete embarrassment on the world stage with the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, illegal immigrants crashing the southern border with impunity, the loss of America’s energy independence, and the list goes on.
It’s clear that everything these radical big government socialists touch ends in disaster – and now they’re putting “voting rights” legislation front and center. Instead of allowing free and fair elections, D.C. Democrats are trying to change the rules for their own political benefit. Make no mistake, this continued façade to federalize America’s elections is not about voter integrity, it is about control.
President Biden and Vice President Harris parachuted into Georgia last week to deliver an inaccurate and inflammatory voting rights speech. Their divisive and condescending claims have zero basis in fact and are nothing more than politically driven rhetoric meant to mislead the public – but Georgians aren’t buying it.
During the 2020 election cycle, many states accelerated the adoption of new changes to allow safe access to the polls during the height of the pandemic. Unfortunately, many forms of voting were expanded without proper safeguards in place to protect ballot integrity. In order to simultaneously maintain increased voter access and the integrity of the voting process, Georgia prioritized passing the Election Integrity Act. This law allows for more days of early voting than both New York and Delaware – blue states whose voting laws haven’t drawn the same skepticism and critique from the administration as states like Georgia and Texas.
Georgia’s new election security law further expands and codifies many popular new voting practices, establishing drop boxes in all 159 counties across the state, while implementing new protective measures that make it more difficult to illegally cast a ballot.
Simply put, Georgia’s critical and commonsense law is a strong, secure and fair state legislation that makes it easier to vote and harder to cheat.Despite the fact that more folks voted in Georgia’s 2020 election than ever before, Biden hasn’t let the facts get in his way and continues to promote untrue and unreasonable claims of voter suppression. In fact, 94% of Americans say it’s easy to vote, and more Americans currently believe voting laws are too lax rather than too restrictive. Democrats are trying to solve a problem that just doesn’t exist – all to tilt the balances of elections in their favor for years to come…
The American people aren’t falling for Democrats’ trap, and it’s time for them to address the real and urgent crises created by this administration that are plaguing Americans every single day.
