National Democrats need to develop a strategy to overcome the noise....

and take the GOP to school on messaging.

Democrats need more to get their street fighting mojo on....working smart.

Start by taking ONE little known, harmful line item in the tax bill and hammer away in a press conference, and in every interview - same message from everyone...

Something like....."Do voters know there is a provision in the tax bill that no longer prohibits churches from openingly supporting candidates....if voters don't know that, what else don't they know?"

It doesn't have to be that, it is has to be something.

My God, something, anything...but Democrats be orginazed...be street fighters together.

1. I have been emailing about this to my Dem. reps.

If they do not get booked on the 24/7 news outlets... I say get a bullhorn and get out on the steps of the Capitol. EVERY DAY!...take turns.
Call this corrupt regime out and don't mince words. The press will come to them.

2. They took much of the really offensive stuff out

The Johnson amendment is not repealed. Student loan interest is still deductible as is medical expenses and (I think) teachers paying for school supplies. Fetuses can no longer start 529 college savings accounts.
But there's still a vast amount of wrong here, starting with the fact that we get crumbs while the rich get 80% or more of the "tax cuts". And never forget the deliberate explosion of the deficit so they can scream about "OMG the national debt!!" in due time as an excuse to cut SS and Medicare.
I think we should start with how unpopular the bill is and the fact that our elected "representatives" voted for it anyway. If they don't represent their constituents, exactly who do they represent?

4. Cant do it, no way

We are too busy yelling at each other, imposing purity tests, fighting old battles, and in general effing each other.

Great fun but accomplishes nothing.
