Upon Choosing Congress
You will be greeted with two more buttons.
° House of Representatives
After having chosen an option you will then see a roster of currently elected officials. The roster of currently serving members will appear organized by filters of your choosing and appear in squared frames with their election photo. You can filter the roster by Party, Committees or Alphabetically.
After choosing a member the screen will transition inward toward the elected official where Voters will then be able to see the following information.
° Party, State/District of representation, Age/DoB
° Which Committee they are currently serving
° If they are part of a caucus/group, which one?
° When were they elected and when is their re-election?
° How many terms have they served?
° What were their campaign vows?
On their Profiles their should be Tabs for the following information
Cenks favorite feature will be found here lol
° WHO DO YOU WORK FOR (A list of their B̶r̶i̶b̶e̶s̶, er I mean donors)
° Bills/Amendments they propose
° Which Way They Voted (shows recent bills/amendments and their voting history.)
Goals of the App
° Easily Accessible & CRUCIAL Information for the everyday voter.
Overtime the goal is to get this into the hands of everyone so that media no longer controls the narrative about what voters should and shouldn’t know regarding who we vote for.
° People can see the donor money and draw their own conclusions.
This point specifically is what our elected officials are going to fear over time. This will have a massive domino effect that Cenk will have a field day covering lol
If this APP was to become reality and someday became the pocket guide for every voter in America, (WHICH WE COULD HAVE TYT MEMBERS HELP PROMOTE AT VOTING LOCATIONS OR COLLEGES) it would set an entirely new ball game for congress. Over time, it wouldn’t matter how much donor money congress members received. If they want to keep their seat, they MUST serve their constituents.
Some final footnotes for random ideas post brainstorming
The original idea for the app was to cover the House and Senate only. While it would be a lot of work, if the app were to grow enough, it would be cool to also expand to state legislatures, governors and presidents.
Maybe small steps toward a much larger goal??
Add a “details of bill” button to show/hide full details of the amendments/bill to reduce clutter when viewing from profiles. Since all members of congress/senate will vote on the same bills, once a voter is familiar with the contents of a specific bill they wont have to constantly scroll through the details repeatedly.
Maybe hire a team to develop the app?
Honestly the idea of this gets me super excited.
