Democrats want big liberal states like California and New York to decide every presidential election. That’s why they hate the Electoral College system. They can’t stand the idea that all states have a say in our national elections. Steve Cohen, a Democrat rep. from Tennessee just proposed getting rid of the electoral system completely.
The Washington Times reports:
Rep. Steve Cohen introduces constitutional amendment to abolish Electoral College
A Democratic House member introduced two proposed constitutional amendments on his party’s first day in power, one of which would abolish the Electoral College.
Rep. Steve Cohen, Tennessee Democrat and a Judiciary Committee member, said in a statement that that proposal was inspired by his party’s defeats in two presidential elections in the past generation — Al Gore in 2000 and Hillary Clinton in 2016.
In those race “the winner of the popular vote did not win the election because of the distorting effect of the outdated Electoral College. Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office. More than a century ago, we amended our Constitution to provide for the direct election of U.S. Senators. It is past time to directly elect our President and Vice President,” Mr. Cohen said in his statement.
The other amendment proposal is also squarely aimed at President Trump — it would bar a president from pardoning himself or numerous close associates.
What Democrats are saying is that the system must be changed so they will always win. It’s not going to happen.
