The House has passed HR1…….and the peasants danced……
What is HR1?
To expand Americans’ access to the ballot box, reduce the influence of big money in politics, and strengthen ethics rules for public servants, and for other purposes.
BREAKING: The House just passed HR1, which includes: -Automatic voter registration -Public financing of elections -An end to gerrymandering -Election Day as a federal holiday -Support for overturning Citizens United This is the greatest victory for democracy in generations.
Is that not a bit premature?
After all it must go to the Senate….and as we all know…the Senate is where good ideas go to die a slow death.
Maybe the media should hold off on proclaiming this a blow for democracy just yet…….maybe wait to see just how bad the Senate can screw this bill up…….
Just A Thought.
