@amprog is thrilled that @OversightDems is holding a hearing on #HR1, #ForThePeople Act. #HR1 is a once-in-a generation robust reform package that will help restore the promise of our democracy.
Ahead of the midterm elections, a Wall Street Journal/NBC poll found that 77% of registered voters stated that “Reducing the influence of special interests and corruption in Washington” is either the most important or a very important issue facing the country.

Our democracy does not work unless it works for all of us, by serving us, not wealthy special interests. #HR1 will ensure accountability in government, curb corruption, restore voting rights and increase transparency. #HR1 #ForThePeople.
Here is a partial list of what #HR1, #ForThePeople Act would do:

On campaign finance:

✅Overturn Citizens United
✅Redefine and ban candidate and Super PAC co-ordination
✅Stop foreign interests from affecting U.S elections
On Voting Rights:

✅Automatic voter registration
✅Same day voter registration
✅Increase early voting days
✅Making Election Day a National holiday
✅Expanding the Voting Rights Act
On Ethics:

✅Require presidents to disclose 10 years worth of tax returns
✅Slow the revolving door
✅Prevent members of Congress from sitting on Corporate Boards
✅Increase the Office of Government Ethics enforcement
