GET THE FACTS: Partisan Power Grabs

Democrats have historically narrow margins in Congress. The Senate is split 50-50 and Speaker Pelosi has the thinnest majority in decades. While President Biden talks about his party’s domestic policy agenda, he will not tell the truth about his party’s motives.

The fact is that Democrats have taken a number of steps to artificially enhance their power so they can force through their radical agenda. These attempted power grabs are an affront to the voices of the American people and threaten the very foundation of our institutions that have sustained our democracy

Partisan Power Grabs: 

  • Passed legislation to protect incumbent politicians, provide taxpayer-funds for campaigns, and federalize the entire electoral process.
  • Voted to make Washington, DC a state solely to add two Democrat Senators in an effort to abolish the filibuster and advance their dangerous ideas.
  • Attempted to steal a congressional seat from Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks even after a bipartisan canvassing board certified her as the winner.

Don’t fall for the President’s rhetoric. While he talks in his speech tonight about unity, the agenda that he and his party are pursuing is extreme and would have negative consequences for the American people. Because it is so radical, Democrats know that they cannot enact it within our democracy’s current guidelines which is why they are attempting to seize power away from the American people and empower themselves.
