I just called the White house comment line: 202-456-1111 and I encourage everyone else to do it as well.
I am furious and as of this moment, I no longer consider myself a Democrat, nor will I vote for Hillary if she doesn't address this issue as an emphatic miscarriage of justice and puts it on her 100 day agenda...no exceptions.
If he doesn't correct this and win the battle between him and his evil subordinates, my ethical line has been crossed. You are not worthy of my vote or my consideration. I let the phone operator know that very clearly.
I've called the White house 3 times previously. Once when Bush was in office and he wanted to privatize SS, once when we gave a huge foreign aid package to Pakistan when they were about to execute a woman for being raped, and the Pakistani government did intervene and stop it, and the last time was over the US journalists held hostage in Iran, I thought it was reprehensible to do a nuclear deal with a country that was holding hostages. Ultimately they got released.
This means that all 3 times I called, the side I was advocating for prevailed. Obviously I don't think I have any, if extremely minimal impact on the actual outcome, but I think my outrage barometer is fairly well-adjusted. Hopefully that will be the case and this asinine and oppressive ruling will be revisited.
As of now though, I am an unaffiliated independent.
