TALKING POINTS :
GUNS: Pundits and pollsters alike suggest the Parkland shooting and the following work of the students has created a sea-change for the issue. What are our MOCs doing? Sen. Schatz indicated last week that there’s no Congressional solution, that it needs to happen at the state and local level. Cong. Gabbard is one of only 26 Dems to not sponsor an assault weapon ban recently introduced. Where is their action and their commitment?
TRUMP CAN’T HAVE FIRST STRIKE ABILITY! The Olympics are over and the US is evacuating all non-essential personnel from South Korea. What are we doing to stop Trump from having the unilateral ability to strike at will? Where are the adults? How are we stopping him?
RUSSIA: We’ve known all along that Trump doesn’t want to talk about this, but now we learn from the NSA Director that the WH nor the Pentagon have instructed the NSA to strike against the Russian cyber operations. They know it’s happening and they’re actively doing nothing about it. How it that possible? What are our MOCs doing to stop that right now?
It’s increasingly evident that the president is using his office exclusively for personal and political gain, and we’re allowing it. Saying we don’t have the votes isn’t enough anymore. What can be done?
