9. Without HR1 (which requires killing the filibuster) we won't be electing more Dem senators

With the new voter suppression laws just passed in GA, Warnock will likely lose re-election in 2022, and Dems picking up any new seats is unlikely as over 500 voter suppression laws in 43 states are in the works.

If HR1 fails to pass this year, the house majority disappears just through the gerrymandering of 6 districts. Republicans are working to rig the system for minority rule for a decade or more. If they take the house, they will impeach Biden and Harris; if they take the senate, they will install their candidate in the White House in 2024, regardless of the actual election results, by challenging and rejecting as many electoral votes as needed to make it so.

People who realize the survival of the Democratic Party, and the survival of American democracy depends on the elimination of the filibuster and passage of HR1, this year:

Adam Schiff
Jeff Merkley
Amy Klobuchar
Bernie Sanders
...and Barack Obama.

2022 will be too late- district lines will be redrawn and voter suppression laws will be in place.

As Schiff put it, this is a “break glass” emergency.
