Right there with you, Doug. The only way to demonstrate the stupidity and danger of Democrat Party policies is to allow them to be enacted fully. There shouldn't be a single "Yay" or "Nay" vote. Every Republican in Congress should just vote "Present," and then explain to the American people their disagreement with those policies and offer their own solutions.
There can be no significant opposition, because if there is, then the MSM and Democrats will be able to blame Republicans just as they have this time.
The American people will then either "get it" or they won't. If they don't then we are finished anyway.
