Kamala, I appreciate your recommendations for our involvement. They are constructive and politically correct. I use the latter term because, from my perspective, what’s missing is the strategy to call-out (indeed, shame) the GOP supporters of this abomination. Yes, I recognize some of this occurs in town hall settings, but …

They need to be embarrassed now and pay the political price long-term for sacrificing their principles to push this bill, which we know most of them have not read and/or can’t explain. But more than that …

It needs to be made clear they are not just Trump Care supporters, but in too many cases, they are Trump proxies — who appear to be incapable of operating independently of his immorality and incompetence.

A report card for each that includes votes for incompetent, conflicted, or untruthful Cabinet nominees, positions on Trump taxes and conflicts of interest, support (or not) of a special prosecutor, etc. would be useful. Leave no daylight between them and Trump; so their popularity is no better than Trump’s popularity.
