The Bills Ahead

billsOh, there are complicated issues. We did a deep dive into how the “costs” of legislation should be calculated last week. This time let’s keep it simple.

Here are all the bills the House plans to debate next week (along with the sponsor and committee that considered them). If you click on the links and vote “Yes” or “No” on the bills, that will signal to other Americans what you think should happen. You just might convince others, and Congress just might recognize what public sentiment is.

Check back later in the week and see whether others agreed with your vote!

HR 4935 Does nothing to stop the fraud costing taxpayers billions when illegals claim children who do not live in the U.S. Where is a bill to prevent that?
