Closing Thought–08Mar19–#2

The House has passed HR1…….and the peasants danced……

What is HR1?

https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/1/text

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.

Victory?

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.
