How to Propose a Bill in Washington, DC

30 Apr

Ray: Here’s a clip from the classic movie, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. This 1939 film was directed by Frank Capra and launched James Sterwart to stardom. In this movie, we follow a young man (Mr. Smith) who is handpicked by a corrupt governor to represent his state in the US Senate. Mr. Smith has no idea how politics works, let alone the details of the scheme that got him to the Senate, but has huge dreams to make a difference in his new position of power.

The movie also featured Jean Arthur who gives us a little lesson on how to propose a bill in Washington, DC. I recommend that everyone watch this movie at some point in their lives. I think it’s a golden rule that every aspiring politician should definitely watch this movie. Either way, it should make a Blockbuster night. Enjoy:
