Anti-Corruption Bill Is Key To Stopping ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

There’s some twisted logic in this one, which would include a violation of the 1st Amendment section of petitioning for redress of grievance

Lieu says passage of anti-corruption bill is key to tackling climate change, health care

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) said during an interview that aired Tuesday that passing House Democrats’ anti-corruption bill is crucial to addressing more complex issues like health care and climate change.

Lieu said on “Rising” that special interests and lobby groups continue to dominate policymaking in Washington and the political reform bill — commonly referred to as “H.R. 1” — will help level the playing field for other legislative initiatives.

“The reason we’re making it our first bill is because, as Democrats, we can’t tackle the substantive issues of climate change, of health care and other issues without first equalizing the playing field,” he told actor Richard Schiff.

“We can’t have a playing field where corporate interests and special interests continue to have the upper hand and what H.R. 1 [does] is to set the table so that everyone has a fair shot at getting their legislation through that helps the American people,” the California Democrat continued.

In other words, they can’t jam stuff down the throats of the American people if you darned people have the ability to protest and block them. Most of those corporate and special interests are backed to people. Sure, some are oversized and have way too much influence, and that applies to all sides, but, at the end of the day, the 1st Amendment says Congress can pass no law that stops this.
