Representative Pramila Jayapal of Washington poses next to the Build Back Better Bill mascot on Capitol Hill.
Oh yes, and hopefully not solve problems with violence.
I’d like to know which human got to wear the costume. I suspect this task was given to the most junior member of some congressional staff, or even an intern. If I was managing this, I would have hired a professional mascot actor to elevate the moment even further.
I’m hoping this bill gets through the Senate, chalking up a win for public policy and democracy.
