Deconstructed: Could The “For The People Act” Save Democracy?

The sweeping reform package would transform American elections, but first it has to make it past the filibuster.

H.R.1, ALSO KNOWN as the “For the People Act” is a sweeping reform bill that aims to make voting easier, gerrymandering harder, and generally rein in the out-of-control minoritarianism that has come to characterize American democracy. Does it have a chance of becoming law?

Rep. John Sarbanes, political scientist Jacob Hacker, and The Intercept’s Jon Schwarz join Ryan Grim to discuss.

First aired on Deconstructed.
