The bill is widely condemned by Republicans but leftist sponsors such as the Sixteen Thirty Fund have funneled at least $2 million into passing H.R. 1 and other leftist legislation to further Democrat agendas.

Some states such as Texas and Georgia have already taken steps in their own legislatures, much to the left’s chagrin, to ensure that loose voting features in their
