THE NUMBERS ARE IN

    The For the People Act Is Popular with…Actual People

    The For The People Act (H.R. 1/S. 1) — the most significant fair elections and anti-corruption bill generations — passed the House of Representatives in March. Unfortunately, it is currently stalled in the Senate, as Republican senators are weaponizing the filibuster to block its progress.

    Blocking the For The People Act is not what the American people want or deserve. The For The People Act and its major provisions are extremely popular, and Americans are prepared to reform the filibuster if it means passing this historic bill.

    Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have been struggling to summon the courage to reform the filibuster to pass the For The People Act. Fortunately, voters in West Virginia and Arizona have sent a clear message that they want the For The People Act. Let’s take a closer look:
