Sheila Jackson Lee's Reparations Bill -- Which Prepares the Way to Actual Reparations By First "Studying" The Need for Them -- Gets Boost from Democrat Presidential Candidates

This is so conservative I gotta think The Bulwark will post an endorsement of it!

House legislation to form a commission to study whether black Americans should receive reparations for slavery is getting a significant boost from Democrats on the presidential campaign trail.

Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), the head of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), suggested that action on a reparations measure sponsored by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) is all but certain, with Democrats now in control of the lower chamber and the idea gaining prominence on the national stage.


Jackson Lee's bill would form a commission to study the issue of reparations but does not call for black Americans to receive payments.

...

2020 hopefuls including Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) are backing the legislation. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), another presidential candidate, is a co-sponsor.

And on Wednesday, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) endorsed the idea, a pivot from his earlier statement of opposition to reparations payments.
