Now that HR1 has passed the House, I hope the Senate will take seriously the urgent need to pass this bill and make it law. If we don’t pass this bill, I fear our democracy will be lost to Republican voter suppression for a generation. Everything else flows from this (climate change, infrastructure, wage equity, etc), and so nothing is more important. If it takes reforming or even ending the filibuster altogether, then so be it. I thank my Congress member for voting YES on HR1 and I thank Senator Padilla for his support of filibuster reform. I hope Senator Feinstein recognizes this moment and acts accordingly. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Thank you!
