And to think we were worried that the “For the People Act” was bad legislation!
We could’ve saved ourselves a lot of handwringing if we’d just waited for The Bulwark to explain why it’s ackshually fantastic when you really look at it:
It’s neither a progressive nor partisan bill—it’s a pro-democracy bill that should appeal to Americans of all political backgrounds. What you need to know about H.R. 1 https://t.co/5OYDczURC5
