Fact Check: Biden & Harris’ Lies About Elections, Voting Rights, Filibuster

from Heritage Foundation,

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris repeated numerous falsehoods about the election process and the filibuster Tuesday while pushing their anti-voter agenda in Georgia. These comments come as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer prepares to cast aside decades of Senate precedent and force changes to the filibuster in order to pass two unpopular and dangerous election bills, both of which failed to gain majority support in the Senate last year.

We fact-checked 5 of Biden and Harris’ false remarks:

Claim No. 1: Republicans want to make it difficult for millions of Americans to vote.

Claim No. 2: Giving voters food and water while waiting to vote is illegal.

Claim No. 3: Mass mail-in voting mail is safe and secure.

Claim No. 4: The Freedom to Vote Act will get politics out of the election process.

Claim No. 5: Republicans oppose debating the voting rights bills.
