A challenge to the Senate:

How does it feel to be working in a "cesspool" ?

Are you happy to have a(nother) bully on your back? 

Newly appointed White House Communications Director Scaramucci is flexing his political muscles and has vowed that he will "drain the swamp", to mimic the words of his boss, the President. Their disdain of DC and all it stands for is apparent and it must be very disheartening to work under these restrictive conditions.

We, the people of America who voted you into office, can see the way this is undermining your effectiveness. However this doesn't change the fact that we expect and deserve much more than we are getting. It's time for ALL of you in the Senate to step up to the plate and work together ! This fear-based atmosphere is putting a strangle hold on Washington and it must be eradicated.

In the words of gutsy Senator McCain ... "we are not the president’s subordinates. We are his equal.”

Are you up to the challenge ?

Gotta love McCain's determination to do the right thing. Wish he were healthier and the majority leader.

McCain seems like a bit of an enigma, but he stood up this time. As did a few others.

This is not the republican party of my father. It is like the worst of reality tv. I can't believe that we have let this happen. This too shall pass I hope.

I think you should give the less creative of us permission to copy your letter - or at least paraphrase it, and send it to every Senator and representative they can get an address for.
I am so ashamed of what is going on in DC right now.

As GWP said - it is not the Republican party of my youth, either! Reagan wounded it, Bush killed it, tRump is kicking around the rotting parts.

Thanks to all for your comments and please feel free to do as Possum suggests. Copy this and send it on to as many Senators as you can reach. Since January I have sent a barrage of emails to my 2 NC Senators and was very happy to have this one actually read on the NPR nation wide morning program "1A" on July 18th:

Senators Burr & Tillis: the health issue has gone far enough. It's about time that you STAND UP FOR US, the citizens of North Carolina that put you both into office. Please show the guts to resist the president and McConnell's tactics. They are now talking of repealing with nothing to replace. THIS WILL KILL PEOPLE ... have you and the whole bunch up there in DC no hearts at all? I am completely fed up with all of you.
