Why not let people vote for the candidates they actually like, instead of forcing them to vote against candidates they hate? - 01/24/2023.

1. I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that when the Republican professional voter.....

.....suppression organization hears "more inclusive" they're going to be against this.
Got to love Robert Reich. These videos are always so informative.

3. I really like Robert Reich, too. I always learn something, too, so I couldn't resist!

2. Ranked choice isn't a panacea..

...it certainly won't discourage hit pieces against candidates by so-called "SuperPACs".

Instant Runoff has a bunch of real positives so I'm not sure why Reich is touting that clearly false aspect in this.

4. Wasn't it successful in Alaska?

I'm not expecting it to be implemented here in New York, but I always enjoy Robert Reich's take on things...

...the governor's race had all sorts of them.

5. Never been a Robert Reich video I haven't liked

Wish we could force feed republicans his videos on "trickle down economics"
so they'd learn how their party is screwing them.

7. They have this in Alaska and Maine

Kick the entirety of Congress out, replace them with all new people, and pay them $2 million per year. People who can't currently afford to be in Congress because they can't live on less money than a Walmart or Lowe's store manager earns will be able to serve in Congress.
