Around the country, right-leaning lawmakers have had it up to here with our newfound activist movement, and they really wish we’d just cut it out already.
By now, you may have heard about Republican Congressman David Bratt of Virginia, who’s just done with uppity women.
“Since Obamacare and these issues have come up, the women are in my grill no matter where I go,” Brat said to laughter at a private event on Saturday, according to a video posted to Facebook. “They come up and say, ‘When’s your next town hall?’ And believe me, it’s not to give positive input.”
It’s gotten to the point were he’s asking for help from his friends on the right.
He asked the audience to mobilize because “we’re getting hammered.”
Activists have also succeeded in getting two Republican Senators to commit to voting against Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary, meaning that we’re just one Republican nay-sayer short of killing her nomination.
The message here is: It’s working. Every phone call, every office visit, every protest is taking a toll. Soon, these guys are going to figure out that they can’t get away with just going to Washington to serve their corporate friends and big-dollar donors. They’re going to have to represent us, or they’re going to have to start packing
