As my colleague Bonchie explained so well, thanks to the Senate Parliamentarian doing their job, the Democrat’s sweeping agenda of H.R. 1, the PRO Act and even the Infrastructure Bill looks to be coming to a screeching halt. With West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin (D-Bulwark) and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Stands With a Fist) holding tough on maintaining the filibuster and not voting on garbage that would harm their constituents, our economy, our livelihoods, and the integrity of the voting process just might be saved for future generations.

I don’t count the Democrats out with their ability to pull dirty tricks, but what all of this push back and resistance to their progressive agenda has allowed is for the truth about these bills to be fully investigated, and people in every state to weigh in with their Senators. The true independent professionals (rather than those who play act at it) have been very vocal in expressing their displeasure with the PRO Act.

According to this opinion writer, many Alaskans have weighed in via recent poll. The PRO Act has been weighed in the balance, and found wanting.

Alaskans have always had an independent, pioneering spirit. It is no surprise then, that a recent poll commissioned by the Alaska Chamber, Alaska Trucking Association, Alaska Support Industry Alliance and the Associated General Contractors of Alaska found, by a 3-to-1 margin, Alaskans prefer the
