An open letter to the U.S. Congress

STOP SPINNING START DOING

6 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

Greetings. I am a voting constituent in rural west Texas. I have a new puppy. Which means, at the moment, my attention is diverted a bit from the actions of our elected officials. Somehow it’s more gratifying cleaning up his messes than pointing out America’s. But that said... “New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told CNN’s Chris Cillizza that Democrats like him had a fact-based theory about how to beat coronavirus infections: keep the state closed until metrics showed the virus was receding. Republicans, in contrast, thought: “We can reopen quickly and we can handle the virus because it will go away, or we will have a vaccine.” Cuomo pointed out that the coronavirus highlighted the difference between reality and a narrative based in ideology. "A virus has a rate of increase and a number of deaths either goes up or goes down," he said. “The number of people going to hospitals goes up or goes down. It's not subject to debate because the hospital bed is either empty or it's full, we either bury people or we don't." "We tested both theories," Cuomo told Cillizza. "We have the evidence. It's numbers. It's irrefutable. Why don't we pause and recognize the undeniable reality of the situation?" "There are no Democratic facts and Republican facts," he said. "There are just facts." This pandemic has seriously highlighted the stark contrast between the Republican and Democratic effectiveness of governing. One wishes it were so. One makes it so. When is your half of the country going to stop gambling, blustering, and denying and start taking care of America?
