This is democracy in reverse, where politicians have decided that instead of the voters picking their representatives, the representatives have a right to cherry-pick their voters. It’s un-American. It’s anti-democratic. We have to resist it.”Sen. Raphael Warnock
Last week was For the People Week here at DemCast! We know this act is wildly popularly with the majority of Americans of all political parties. Now we just need to spread the word far and wide about how the For the People Act will help Americans in every aspect of their lives. Freedom to vote. Safe and accessible elections. One person, one vote. Fair representation. These aren’t just words — these words are the promise of real democracy and a government that reflects the will of the people.
So instead of yelling at the screen at lawmakers passing bad voting legislation or trying to compete with the donations of billionaires or wondering if your elected officials are actually working for themselves, read up on the For the People Act. And then share! We all deserve to have a say in key decisions around issues that impact our lives, like pandemic relief, health care and our economy. With passage of this bill, we will have a chance to make our voices heard.
