60 cosponsors does not mean it will pass. They need 218 votes to pass a bill. The Dems have 222 so they can only afford to have 3 vote against the bill (assuming no GOP vote for it).
And of the 60 cosponsors NOT ONE is a GOP member.
HR8 may be more of a threat as it does have 2 GOP cosponsors.
But the thing is that we can’t just sit back regardless. Do not take a fatalist approach that either WILL pass. Reach out to you Representative and oppose the bills.
