Changes to the Electoral Count Act were included in Joe Biden’s $1.7 trillion budget.
Democrats and Republicans have attached legislation rewriting the 19th-century Electoral Count Act to President Biden’s $1.7 trillion budget, a move that lawmakers say could help avert a repeat of the Jan. 6, 2021 assault on the U.S. Capitol.
The bill, which is the byproduct of bipartisan negotiation, would clarify that the vice president only has a ceremonial role in counting Electoral College votes.
“Reforming the Electoral Count Act is necessary to prevent it from being manipulated to subvert, rather than support, the peaceful transfer of power,” said Rep. John Sarbanes, D-Md.
The ambiguity surrounding the vice president’s role under the 1887 Electoral Count Act was put to the test after the 2020 election. Former President Trump and his allies argued that the law allowed the vice president to reject electors from states with irregularities.
It was another cave from RINO Republicans in the Senate.
Trump responded on Truth Social by saying that the change proves the Vice President had the authority to not certify the 2020 election.
I don’t care whether they change The Electoral Count Act or not, probably better to leave it the way it is so that it can be adjusted in case of Fraud, but what I don’t like are the lies and “disinformation” put out by the Democrats and RINOS. They said the Vice President has “absolutely no choice,” it was carved in “steel,” but if he has no choice, why are they changing the law saying he has no choice?
Simply put, it is because the Vice President did have a choice, and looking back at it now, the 2020 Voting Fraud was far greater than anyone thought possible, with even our Government, through the FBI, changing the results of the Election by millions and millions of votes.
Trump was right!
