Every Single House Republican Voted Against The Ethics Reform Bill

Quelle surprise.

Via the Washington Post:

The House on Friday approved a far-reaching elections and ethics bill — one that would change the way congressional elections are funded, impose new voter-access mandates on states, require “dark money” groups to publicize their donors and force disclosure of presidential candidates’ tax returns.

Democrats dubbed the bill H.R. 1, a designation meant to signal its place as a centerpiece of their congressional agenda. The measure, which has more than 500 pages, contains dozens of provisions favored by liberal advocacy groups, labor unions and other Democratic allies.

The bill is headed for a brick wall in the Republican-controlled Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has dismissed it as the “Democrat Politician Protection Act” and made clear it will not get a vote.

The only thing Republicans hate more than Democrats is Democracy.
