Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that the Pfizer vaccine is very effective against the Brazil, UK, and South Africa variants. They also shred the Democrats’ election reform legislation as a federal power grab that weakens the power of states, eliminates key protections, and stifles political speech – and the “principled conservatives” who actually support it. And while the vaccines appear to be working well, they push back hard against the notion of needing a “vaccine passport” to re-enter normal life.

    Unless I’m badly misunderstanding the voting process, all elections are state or local institutions, and it is up to state and local officials to determine the manner and processes of voting.

    How would this H.R.-1 bill even pass constitutional muster?

    If it were to pass, I can only imagine the number of lawsuits that it would engender.

    The same way motor voter got through.  Congress does have a lot of control over congressional elections.  They make rules for congressional votes and if the state/local elections have different rules, then the states have to keep two sets of books.  This is an administrative headache.  So the states end up adopting the federal rules.

    As soon as vaccine passports are required, I’ll have a black market one.
