It is called the “For the People Act of 2021.” It’s anything but. Passed in the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 220 to 210, with no Republican support, H.R. 1 is raising alarm bells on a variety of fronts. In this conversation, our experts will discuss the bill’s impact on the integrity of elections, the negative effect on public discourse and donor privacy, and the potential for its provisions to lead to one-party rule. Each of these is alarming. Taken together they are the recipe for instability in a country already suffering from discontent and turmoil.
