This isn’t gonna pass, is it?


Less than 7% of Americans are millionaires. Over 50% of Congress are.


Does it also handle dark money donations and super PACs? Does it reverse Citizens United? No? Then the floor will stay filthy.


There will still be plenty of other ways for the filth to profit from their public service while in office. This bill is a good start though. I’m guessing at least half of the Democrats will be against it, as well as all Republicans.


Lol imagine trying to pass a bill that requires the very people you’re trying to pass the bill against to vote to pass it.
