Don't bother, they're here.
Terrific reporting. I will try call and write this week, per your suggestions. We are at a turning point in History....thank you!
Honestly, I think that at this point, we can safely assume that there are no more "normal Republicans", at least none who exercise any real power. Even those who are not expressly/openly MAGA do not do anything other than kowtow to those who are, because the fact of the matter is that MAGA is in firm control of both the elected representatives and those who vote in the primaries. That is what/who the Republicans are now.
Watching this Republican clown show from a distance (Canada) is very scary (too close to home) but I am heartened by the ongoing efforts of Jerry and his like-minded citizens to fight back through truly democratic means.
The Cowardice of Kevin McCarthy was evident in his voice and demeanour yesterday when he unilaterally declared this new witch-hunt/fishing expedition. Are we living in an Age of Delusion? Here in Canada we're facing a mini-Trump populist leading in the polls and using Trump's playbook - tapping into anger and fear and frustration - so we too may need to follow your lead soon.
Congrats to everyone here for your efforts to bring sanity back to government.
Thank you so much for giving me actual tasks I can do, rather than more handwriting and pronouncements of "Isn't it terrible? WAAA!" with no following suggestions. I'll start writing and calling today.
Are you posting on Daily Kos? Robert Reich? Please do so as there are lots of potential helping hands there. Thanks.
"Unfortunately, since all Members just took a six-week vacation, there’s no longer enough time to pass these bills before the deadline." With substantial respect, Jerry, I disagree. There is plenty of time to pass the bills because the Senate has provided the language of all 12. When we accept the Congressional idea of a work schedule, we forget a lesson we all learned back in kindergarten - if you don't finish what you're working on before recess, you either don't go to recess or you finish it as soon as you get back. It's time these children remembered the lessons of their youth and got back to the country's business.
