In the past two years, I’ve read 245 US congressional bills and reported on a staggering amount of corporate political influence. AMA.
My name is Jen Briney and I spend most of my time reading through the ridiculously long bills that are voted on in US Congress and watching fascinating Congressional hearings. I use my podcast to discuss and highlight corporate influence on the bills. I've recorded 93 episodes since 2012.
Most Americans, if they pay attention to politics at all, only pay attention to the Presidential election. I think that’s a huge mistake because we voters have far more influence over our representation in Congress, as the Presidential candidates are largely chosen by political party insiders.
My passion drives me to inform Americans about what happens in Congress after the elections and prepare them for the effects legislation will have on their lives. I also want to inspire more Americans to vote and run for office.
I look forward to any questions you have! AMA!!
EDIT: Thank you for coming to Ask Me Anything today! After over 10 hours of answering questions, I need to get out of this chair but I really enjoyed talking to everyone. Thank you for making my first reddit experience a wonderful one. I’ll be back. Talk to you soon! Jen Briney
