What do your MoCs think about North Korea? Do they believe Secs. Mattis & Tillerson, and talk of back channel diplomacy? Are they OK with the possibility that DJT’s bluster is just a show for his base? Share your fears & views.


If your MoC named and condemned the perpetrators of racism and hatred in Charlottesville, say thanks. If not (like DJT) ask why.


Few MoCs are braving town halls this month, but those who are continue to face citizens who demand affordable healthcare. Even so, there’s talk of another vote to repeal. Or maybe a bipartisan bill. Who knows? The ACA is still alive because of your calls, emails, posts and tweets. Don’t let up!


Every week we try to write with a positive voice and resist snark. But last week we took a minute to cheer the 30′ presidential chicken just outside the White House grounds. Then we remembered: millions of American cheered for entirely different reasons. If only a chicken could bring us together.
