The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN:  Good afternoon. Today, two months until July 4th, I’m here to report that we’re — we’re in our vaccination program — where we are and what comes next in an effort to get this country back closer to normal.

And first: Where are we? Well, as everyone knows, I promised that we’d administer 100 million shots in my first 100 days. After we met that goal, we doubled it to a — a historic 200 million shots. By the time we reached 100 days last week, we had shattered that mark with over 220 million shots in arms.

Marsha Blackburn: The Fight for Election Integrity

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – If you liked the chaos of the pandemic election, you’re going to love the left’s new effort to complicate voting in America. Despite its innocuous name, the For the People Act, known in the Senate as “S.1,” is a harbinger of anything but productive election reform.

It is a federal takeover of the electoral process. Rather than addressing Americans’ genuine concerns about never-ending vote counts, electioneering, and voter fraud, S.1 would upend the traditional voting system and turn every Election Day into election month, opening the door to uncertainty, taxpayer-funded campaigns, and speech restrictions.
