''The Era of “Centrist” Establishment Democrats Is Over'' ... by William Rivers Pitt:

Is "HR1" also a wee reference to ''Hellary Rotten'' Clinton? She too needs to be jailed!

spero!

Hmmmmm . . . interesting . . . I haven't read the whole thing yet (https://www.npr.org/2019/01/05/682286587/house-democrats-introduce-anti-corruption-bill-as-symbolic-first-act) but just skimming - it looks to address a lot of ills of the current system.

It may be in there - but I haven't seen it yet. I would eliminate the electoral college (if we want elections by total of the vote of the public and not of gov representatives speaking for the public, whether or not "that Public" agrees with them)

HR1 end gerrymandering, it won't pass but it should get a vote and we can see who votes which way and elect more of the people that support it and defeat those that oppose, but we already know who those people are really if we don't listen to the ego whores at least...

Mitch Mcconnell says he will not bring it to the floor in the Senate, I guess elections do matter...
