Dec. 20, 2017, will live on as a day of disgrace and dishonor.
It will be remembered as the day when a government of, by and for the people became a government of, by and for wealthy campaign donors — and of, by and for wealthy Republican politicians themselves.

Just as these rotted- out Republicans exhibited their raw nerve in passing their corrupt wealthfare bill, we must draw on our raw nerve and discipline in cleaning their clocks on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 -- 319 days and counting.
