Good news, fans of democracy!
WASHINGTON — The House passed a bill Wednesday that would make it harder for lawmakers to object to presidential election results.
The bill passed with a vote count of 229 in favor to 203 against with nine republicans in support.
The bill would update the outdated Electoral Count Act of 1887 with the aim of preventing another insurrection like the one on Jan. 6, 2021, when then-President Donald Trump incited a riot at the Capitol as part of his effort to undo his loss in the 2020 election.
And now, to the Senate where surely someone (coughcoughSinemaManchincough) will want a pay-off to not help the Republicans kill the new bill in its sleep.
Still! Good news!
