New York Legislature Passes National Popular Vote Bill

On March 25, both houses of the New York legislature passed S3149, the National Popular Vote Plan bill. The vote in the Senate, which is controlled by Republicans, was 57-4. The vote in the Assembly was 100-32. This is the first state legislature to pass the plan since 2012, although the New York bill hasn’t been signed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo yet.

Assuming the bill is signed, the plan will have passed in 7 eastern jurisdictions (New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Vermont, and D.C.); 3 western states (California, Washington, Hawaii); and one midwestern state, Illinois. It will have received 60% of the electoral votes it needs to get into effect.

    NO uniform definition of Elector-Voter in the NPV scheme from Hell.

    How many usual suspect States will be having children, killers in jail (and other felons) and even alien enemies be voting for a Prez/VP — IF NPV somehow takes effect ???
    —-
    PROPER CONST AMDT –

    1. Uniform definition of Elector-Voter in ALL of the USA.
    2. P.R.
    3. Nonpartisan App.V.

    Much too difficult for the quick fix MORONS doing the NPV scheme from Hell.

    • systemic treason

      every NYS legislator who voted on the two house bills was unconstitutionally nominated and elected from unconstitutionally (NYS constitution) gerrymandered legislative districts — i.e. “rotten boroughs”

      — place your bets

      — will NPV will go ahead with their public employee union and dem/rino patrons and then let them all be eventually consumed in “Obama-cinc-gate” — what happened to our department of defense form foreign waws being replaced by 1984 DHS.

      forget whether or not cinc Obama is nbc — he is probably not even a US citizen

    Oh dear…all those “urban” voters. And now presidential candidates will flood the NY media with adverts.

    And eat bagels!

    Whatever are those NY state Republican voters thinking?

    Maybe…just maybe…they’d like all those upstate Republican voters to have a say in the election of the president?

    Just spitballing here, Jimbo.

    But please…tell us what YOU think! No…better yet…tell us again what the Founding Fathers thought. Use that famous multi-century channeling capability of yours to tell us what a bunch of now dead people were thinking when they adopted the EC… roughly one day after agreeing that the legislature should appoint the president.

    And while you’re at it…ask Elbridge Gerry why he pronounced his last name with a hard “G.” That’s always troubled me.

    Thanks, bud.
