On Wednesday, an important vote takes place in the US House of Representatives. The vote is basically a personnel change. House GOP want to boot Liz Cheney from her leadership position because she persists in doing something the party leaders finds appalling — denouncing Trump’s lies about the 2020 election. If the GOP leaders are successful in ridding themselves of Cheney, and from reports it appears they will be, it will impact the rest of us. How? The GOP, under Trump, will resort to more lies and disinformation to sway voters to believe them. If they regain election wins, they’ve vowed to deepen their hold on power and policy by all means necessary. They’ve already started in state legislatures across the country by passing laws that restrict voting access, stigmatize and penalize transgender students, strip women’s right to choose, and the list continues. They have become the antithesis of Democracy — and this will not end well, if we don’t wake up and CARE about what they are doing to our home, our society and our future. So, today, the Dems have a bill up that will rile every Republican who blindly follows their party’s hateful leadership; Long-haul sufferers of COVID-19 now have a free resource to make life more enjoyable again; and Water! Go beyond the headlines…
