The fact that the "why nay" says in its explanation: "unlikely to pass Congress because it’d ask many House lawmakers to vote to make their district more competitive" is all you need to read for the fact that this NEEDS to pass. You should be representing your entire state/district. Not just certain people within. Gerrymandering should be illegal but that's not what this bill is about. It's about truly competing with your rival to win over the people and serve the people. All the people. If our founding fathers saw how politics works today, I'm fairly certain they would be ashamed.
