Cheney Electoral Reform Bill Passes House

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is winding down her congressional career, but she is going out swinging.

Cheney presented a piece of legislation with Donald Trump in mind to reconfigure how the electoral process is handled once the electors go to the Senate to be verified.

Her legislation passed the House, mostly along party lines, with only the nine Republicans not returning to office supporting the bill.

One Last Swing

Cheney’s bill looks to tighten up language in the 1887 Electoral Count Act.

One of those aspects would be the role of the vice president in this process.

That role has usually been ceremonial, but Trump wanted Pence to send the votes back to the states for investigation.

If Cheney’s law passes the Senate, the VP will be removed entirely from the process.

Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) stated, “It’s clear that anything Liz Cheney touches is all about whacking Donald Trump and not about making meaningful changes.”

Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-N.D.) added, “For me, it matters because you have two people who have been actively engaged in that committee dropping the [bill] like this … when there was the alternative to have the companion vote from the Senate.

“They never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.”

Armstrong was referring to similar legislation in the Senate that is much narrower but has bipartisan support.

Cheney’s bill will likely fall victim to the filibuster unless Senator McConnell (R-KY) has a change of heart.

With Trump’s latest legal problems, it would not surprise me if McConnell whipped up support for this to stick it to Trump.

    1. A-MAN PREACHING TO THE CHIOR TO BAD THE NEW GOP IS MORE INCLINED TO GO ALONG WITH THE DEMOCRATS TO KEEP THE SCAMS ALIVE SO THEY CAN RETIRE IN 4 TO 8 YEARS RICH ON INSIDER TRADING, LIKE PELOSIES’ FAMILY IS DOING.. SOMETHING THAT TRUMP TRIED TO PUT A STOP TO. WHY ELSE WOULD A LAWYER WANT TO BECOME A POLITICIAN THAN TO CASH IN ON THE PEOPLES TAX DOLLARS.

      1. I agree 100%. We need to get rid of all these so called representatives that get rich while they screw the American people. And I don’t care what side they’re on.

  1. Liz Chaney’s last hurrah is dripping with venom. First she lost her mind. Soon she will lose her vote in the House. She needs to go back to Wyoming and help her Dad. He too has caught the Trump derange syndrom.

    1. Liz doesn’t belong in Wyoming! Her Dad went to high school in Casper. That doesn’t make either of them Wyomingites. Maybe Chicago would take them.

    2. Is it any wonder this malcontent has lost her place in the world? Just because she showed her true colors at the beginning. Insane over Trump when she could have done so much for the state of Wyoming. Most of us has accepted the bluster of Donald Trump but we have accepted the fact that that’s just him. His heart is true and he loves our country.

    3. Amen!! I think she’s so obsessed with Trump because all of the corruption is coming to a head. And it goes back years and years. I think daddy Cheney is hiding something.

  2. If this bill will be approved in the Senate by the Republican and Democrat then it is time to clean out those Morons. Those Republicans in the House who voted for this bill have been voted out of office who are Showing their shameful characters before they are leaving. Not good Americans they should be ashamed of themselves.

    1. SO VERY TRUE & I HAVE BEEN SAYING FOR A LONG TIME OF THE 535 REP’S IN THE HOUSE & SENATE MAYBE 25 TO 35 OF THE GOP COULD STAY THE REST IN THE DONKEY & GOP MUST BE REMOVED IN ORDER TO SAVE OUR REPUBLIC!

  3. Hope all you people out there realize, that the left along with the “Rinos” are only out for themselves, their “self gain” and not for the good of the people n country!….This is a perfect example of that! Watch who you vote for, we’re supposed to be a well informed educated society, wake up!!

  4. It a shame that this great country is being destroyed for no good reason than the hatred of a person who could not be forced to comply with DC business as usual. Do any one of these people realize they are nothing more than FEDERAL employees who serve We the People. They are not Kings Queens Princes and Princesses their agenda and policies are those of Authoritarian Dictators much like Putin Xi and our favorite North Korean nut case Kim

  5. The main issue is radical Soros backed secretary of states, whom think they have the power to change the elections process. The law says NO yet people at the state level allow it.
    “The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof.”

    We have only three boxes protecting our freedoms. The ballot Box, The Jury Box and The Cartridge Box.
    The 2020 election has proven the first two ineffective.
    Democrats are not your fellow Americans, stop pretending they are.

    1. Where do you turn when election processes/procedures are changed, but not through legislation, as is supposed to be required? Mail in ballot procedures, drop boxes, counting votes days/weeks after elections. Machines kicking out ballots so they can be changed. Not allowing monitors. They list goes on and on.

  6. This sham bill needs to be buried deep in the ground never to be seen again! The Chaney’s need to have mental health treatment to “normalize the thinking process”. The key here is a saying, ” You’re not stupid, you’re just not lucky when it comes to thinking”.

  7. Chaney is nothing more than a frustrated lib who cannot get her own way. Established or accomplished nothing while in office and is now so frustrated she needs to get satisfaction. I think she is a worthless, pathetic gasbag
    better off FAR OUT OF POLITICS.

  8. I agree with everybody condemning Cheney and her efforts to pervert the role of the vice president’s authority. To over see the electoral college voting. It didn’t do anything for Trump when a question was brought up about Cheating in the 2020 election. Pence went right down the rabbit hole with the Democrats. Now he is stuck with the infamous decision and remains in the rabbit hole….!

  9. I AGREE WITH YOU ALL . WHAT HAPPEN TO ALL THE GOOD PEOPLE WHY DID WE JUST LOOK THE OTHER WAY WHEN DID WE STOP CARING JUST ASKING I KEEP ASKING MY SELF MMM I THAT STUPID AND DIDN’T SEE THIS HATE COMING

  10. The events that took place on Jan 6th that led to the protests were not actions pursuant to a legitimate election. The President merely requested a delay in certification to actually litigate the evidence supporting claims of election fraud. What the communists and Pence wanted and conducted was a coronation. Goodbye America!

  11. Cheney is gone!!!!! Good riddance!!!!!
    GET RID OF ALL RINOS AS WELL AS ALL DEMOCRATS!!!!!!!!
    I really want to cuss but will not!!!!!

  12. This bill needs a ‘disclaimer’ to stop/minimize any voter fraud, or it will be difficult to investigate and make any necessary corrections. Like how 2020 could not be investigated until after months of trying legally to get permission from each state, which allowed for the opposition to do whatever to make changes to the voting records to hide any fraud. How about the challenger must be allowed 180 days to find any irregularities to check the records and equipment, beginning the day after the results are posted.
    Or how about we go back to those old mechanical voting machines that are less susceptible to hacking, fraud, programming errors/algorithms, etc. And they do not need electricity, nor are they affected much by floods.

  13. She has the same mentallity as her oldman
    afterall he could not differenciate the difference
    between a 5oz Quail and a 180lb man.!
