A Good Day for Democracy

The House passed the Build Back Better bill moments ago, attempting to make good on the promises that Democrats made to the electorate last November. To be sure, there may be consequences for the party next fall. If the electorate is unhappy, it may oust the rascals—as the proverbial saying goes. But that is how democracy is supposed to work. Congress should take votes, and the electorate should decide. (Of course, it works significantly better if the districts in which House members run are not gerrymandered!)
