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.

Each of these is alarming. Taken together they are the recipe for instability in a country already suffering from discontent and turmoil.
