NYTimes Editorial Endorses HR 550

Although "endorses" is a bit of an understatement: "Every member of Congress who cares about American democracy should get behind Mr. Holt's bill." The editorial reads with a familiar, almost exasperated tone, one begging the obvious question: how can there still be any disagreement about this?

Kudos to the Times for throwing down the gauntlet. Members of Congress: the ball is in your court.
