— Democrats targeting red states
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats are alarmed by the number of residents fleeing blue states, but “instead of trying to fix the policies” that push people away, liberal lawmakers “want to impose those unpopular mandates nationwide,” observes Liz Peek at The Hill. To “eliminate the competition between states that they are losing,” lefties are “pushing bills that would put the federal government in charge of states’ labor laws, fiscal policies and voting rules” — from stimulus funds that prohibit state-level tax cuts to ballot-box “reforms” intended to enhance blue turnout in red places. These “egregious power-grabs” are “downright authoritarian.”)
