Sit-in no ploy

The Democrats in Congress recently held a sit-in in a desperate attempt to get Republicans to debate and vote on measures to reduce the daily slaughter of Americans.

Last year, 33,000 were shot and killed in the United States, but the right seems only concerned about the small percentage killed by terrorists.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and others called the Democrats’ efforts a publicity stunt and a fund-raising ploy. I would like to know what they call spending millions of our tax dollars to vote 63 times to repeal Obamacare. It’s the pot/kettle times 63.
