It’s exhausting, I know, but don’t let outrage fatigue numb you to the moral bankruptcy and gross incompetence of the Trump administration. This ugly departure from American norms and values must be opposed with sustained passion — and with the knowledge that things will probably get worse before they get better. [...]
As long as there are pro-Trump majorities in the House and Senate, there will be no real congressional oversight and no brake on an out-of-control president’s excesses. Incumbency and gerrymandered districts mean that winning anti-Trump majorities in 2018 will be difficult. But not impossible.
The Democratic Party needs a plan, a message and a sense of urgency. Trump hopes to bully critics into submission, but the country is bigger than this one president. And much better.
Here's the moral bankruptcy of the Trump administration:
ComradeTrump's goal is to allow the ACA "to collapse" and his pledge is to "not own it."
That statement would leave millions and millions and millions of Americans without insurance: Infants, toddlers, children, the elderly, men, women of all ages. No health insurance.
That is morally reprehensible and inhumane, an outrage to Americans by an incompetent and buffoonish president. His children and grandchildren will not be hurt -- billionnaires won't suffer. But the rest of us who are not billionnaires will.
That's not leadership; that's "I don't giveaship!"
But not all GOPers are on board with that kind of nihilism and irresponsible "I don't giveaship!"
This GOPer along with two other legislators are not going to support the catastrophic Trump solution to health care reform:
West Virginia Republican Sen. Shelley Moore Capito
GOP women shut down repeal-only scheme: “I did not come to Washington to hurt people”
Brava! to her and every legislator who puts country above party.
