Counterpunch has a new article about the harm done to minor parties by HR One, the bill in Congress to change many election laws. This one is also by Howie Hawkins, the Green Party presidential nominee in 2020. The article is balanced and acknowledges the helpful parts of the bill. The article also has a list of reforms that should have been included in the bill. The Green Party is doing a very good job of publicizing the harmful aspect of the bill. No daily newspaper has even mentioned that the bill makes it much harder for presidential candidates to qualify for primary season matching funds. Thanks to Fairvote for the link.
