How would you vote? Your U.S. Representative should know.
Let’s require U.S. Representatives to poll their constituents regarding bills scheduled for a vote and publish the results at house.gov. For example:
HR 101 $900 Billion Stimulus Plan
The People say: Nay (68% vs. 32%)
The House says: Yea (51% vs. 49%)
In a digital democracy, the will of the people should be visible on every House bill. Of course, we must allow Reps to vote their conscience, but we will also be free to vote them out of office.
