Over 200 House Democrats Are Uniting Against Trump, Submit A 500-Page Mega-Bill To Protect America



Good news, at the moment, seems few and far between. As a reporter of American politics, I am of course acutely aware of the fact that everything seems to be going wrong all the time at this point. However, there was one very, very good piece of news that emerged late last year was has the potential to have a momentous impact and turn it all around: despite apparent electoral fraud and hacking attempts across the nation by the Republicans, the Democrats managed to regain control of the House of Representatives in those midterm elections held in November of last year.

This is big. It matters. The new Democratic Congress recently took office and they have not wasted any time with passing bills to make President Donald Trump‘s life a whole lot harder and begin to undo the heinous damage he has been doing to our country over the past couple of years, such as the fantastic gun control bill they snuck past him last week. Even in the face of the longest government shutdown in the entire history of the United States and deranged but staunchly insistent demands from the White House for a multi million dollar lump sum to fuel his insane xenophobic fantasy of a Border Wall, they have remained steadfast. These are all brilliant signs – they show that these people, led by the epic Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are going to stand up for America.

This week, they took that a big step further. 221 House Democrats – that’s very nearly every single Democrat in the entire House of Representatives – are now co-sponsoring and publicly backing a bill designed to protect American democracy in the staunchest possible terms. This is no ordinary bill – it is a colossal 571 pages long and it covers everything from campaign finance reform to voters’ rights to ethics improvements. It is a vital step towards repairing our broken and corrupt democracy and I have full confidence that the Democrats are going to make it happen.

Dubbed “H.R. 1”, this mega bill has the potential to totally transform the way our electoral system works for the better, to prevent a repeat of the heinous actions of the GOP during those midterms last year. And the very best part is that Republican President Donald Trump will have to watch it pass and become law while sitting in the White House, all because he lost control of the House of Representatives to the Democrats.

You can read the bill in its entirety right here. Do you support this bill? Let’s hear it!
