      Wasting absolutely no time in the 116th Congress to show the American people that the Democratic majority is interested in making government work for the people, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) submitted legislation to eliminate the Electoral College:

      In two presidential elections since 2000, including the most recent one in which Hillary Clinton won 2.8 million more votes than her opponent, the winner of the popular vote did not win the election because of the distorting effect of the outdated Electoral College. Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office. More than a century ago, we amended our Constitution to provide for the direct election of U.S. Senators. It is past time to directly elect our President and Vice President.

      campaign ads in Ohio as politicians are forced to shift their attention to more populous places like California and New York. Sorry, Floridians, but there are still so many of you that this may not help much.

      election in the US for quite a long time.  Also think this would not have been introduced if Hillary had “won”, and also think yeah, let’s give even MORE power to our largely bought and paid for totally detached and disinterested in what actual people want Congress.  Maybe this is being done in case Bernie wins.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.
