Great App

I really enjoy using this app. It’s so informative and easy to navigate. Four stars because I find myself wishing there was space for commentary & discussion on the articles and legislation. Not sure if it’s designed to avoid that on purpose though, seeing how comment spaces can go down a dark hole so quickly these days.

Best App on my phone!

I love this app. I wish every American had it automatically downloaded on their phones, so they could see every bill their legislators vote on. I hope that this app becomes more popular, and helps the citizens of this country become more interested in politics in DC. I do believe that it leans more left from what I’ve seen. Hopefully more videos will be uploaded that show a more conservative point of view. Everyone’s view needs to be represented to enlighten and encourage new users. I would also like to see a link for each bill to be able to see the bill word for word; although most wouldn’t be interested the more political savvy would be, I’m sure. For our democracy to work voters need to know what’s going on and must be politically active. The government effects all of us; some times positively and sometimes negatively, but the more people know the better chance they will find something their passionate about, and become involved.

Bias free ???

Saw on Varney & co, sounded good so installed it. Does provide info and follow-ability with our congressional reps and bills and their status as well as votes and passage status. To me it seems that the ‘left’, ‘centrist’, ‘right’ commentary all slant heavily left though. Worth having as a single source on reps, bills detail and status.... but there does seem to be a political bias in the summaries they provide.
Update: Tried to login again but it does not recognize me; reregistered using exact same registration info as first time; it accepted it and I had access again ... ‘till I signed off and tried to login again - won’t recognize me.
