"The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money" - Alexis de Tocqueville

117th Congress Swearing In Floor Proceedings – January 3, 2021, House Chamber

Listed in fair, but not entirely accurate, chronological order.  No claim that they are in any order of importance.

These proposals frequently change names because they change scope, find new or additional sponsors and then change names.   Few — less than 10 percent — become law.  Concepts within them may be incorporated into existing public law or inspire changes to existing law.  In all cases you must be mindful of Orwellian deception and dark money flow.  Wish it weren’t so.
