Sen. John Kennedy, (R-LA.), summed up the election reform bill being pushed by Democrats, as the “Screw The People Act.”

During an appearance on Fox & Friends Tuesday, Kennedy slammed the Democrats measure.

“Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer call it, I think the ‘For The People Act,’ but I think it’d be more aptly described as ‘Screw The People Act’, Kennedy said.

“It will make it much easier to cheat in an election. And their bill does that in two ways. Number one, it almost guarantees that we'll never have another election day. We'll have election months. And I think that was the genesis of a lot of concern by many people in the last election.”

“Number two, it achieves its purpose by taking elections which are governed by the people through their state legislatures right now and gives that authority to the federal government. Now, why anybody would take something that's working and give it to the federal government is beyond me. The federal bureaucracy can't even stop scam calls or spam calls. But nonetheless, if you turn our voting procedure over to the federal government, I guarantee you the first thing they're going to do is get rid of voter I.D.”
