Stand Up America Denounces GOP Misinformation During S. 1 Hearing, Urges Senate Passage

WASHINGTON – Following the hearing on the For the People Act (S. 1) in the Senate Rules Committee today, Stand Up America Managing Director Christina Harvey released the following statement:

“Today’s hearing made clear that Republican lawmakers will stop at nothing to suppress the vote—including blatantly lying to the American people about the For the People Act.

“While Senate Democrats made an incredibly compelling case for passing this landmark anti-corruption and pro-democracy legislation, GOP senators like Ted Cruz continue to spread the same disinformation that led to the Capitol Insurrection.

“We call on every Democratic senator to emphatically reject these false attacks and move quickly to pass this bill with 51 votes before the end of Biden’s first 100 days in office.”

Stand Up America first endorsed the For the People Act in 2019 and has since driven thousands of calls to Congress in support of the legislation. Last week, the group announced a six-figure campaign which will mobilize Stand Up America’s community of over two million progressives to ensure that Republicans cannot abuse the legislative filibuster to kill the bill.
