Former first lady Michelle Obama took aim at lawmakers who are working to make it harder for people “with every right to vote to cast a ballot” in a Thursday statement she posted to Twitter.
The former first lady celebrated the House’s Wednesday passage of the For the People Act, also known as H.R. 1, saying she was “thrilled.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The act, which would require states to offer mail-in ballots, a minimum of 15 days of early voting and calls for online and same-day voter registration, is now waiting for Senate approval.
But Republicans warn that the bill also eliminates all voter ID laws, enforce nationwide mail-in voting, and allow ballot harvesting.
Obama slammed those who tried to prevent the bill from passing, declaring in her statement, “Our democracy remains under attack by the partisan and unpatriotic actions of those at the state level who are doing everything they can to curtail access to the voting box.”
I’m thrilled to see that the House of Representatives has passed the #ForThePeopleAct. Now, I urge the Senate to follow suit—nothing is more important to our democracy than safeguarding our right to vote.

GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy warned, “If you liked how the 2020 election was run, then you’re going to love Nancy Pelosi’s election bill. It’s called “H.R. 1,” and it is designed to keep Democrats permanently in power.”
