Democrats refuse to admit how much corruption there is in Washington, D.C.
They constantly sneak corrupt handouts into completely unrelated bills.
But in this episode of Making the Argument, Nick Freitas talks to a Republican leader who is actually doing something about it.
One of the key ways that corruption happens in Washington, D.C., is by making backroom deals and then sneaking them into important bills that they have nothing to do with.
Congress then votes on the entire bill, which has to pass, and these corrupt handouts become law.
The politicians then go home and say that they weren’t voting for the corrupt handout, they were voting to fund the military. And the cycle continues.
Bryce Reeves is running for Congress in Virginia, and he has a plan to fix that corruption.
Reeves wants to make a rule in Congress that every bill must be “germane” – meaning everything in it has to be related to the overall purpose of the bill.
This would prevent corrupt politicians from sneaking their political favors into bills and having them become law.
And in this episode of Making the Argument, Nick Freitas and Bryce Reeves have an important conversation about how to make this policy a reality and end corruption.
