I was up until the wee hours in the morning watching a glorious and wonderful thing happening in the House of Representatives... and yesterday, it once again felt like the people's house.
We went to the Capitol last evening for a few hours and as we were leaving, more people were showing up.
Yesterday the GOP not only lost control of the House, but they lost control of the message. I don't know how the genie gets put back in the bottle after this. They shut the cameras off and yet - there was Periscope and FB live. They tried to disrupt the WiFi to no avail. I believe we have reached a breaking point.
Speaker Ryan called the sit-In a publicity stunt. The thing is - it's a good one. As Representative John Lewis said its #GoodTrouble.
Let's compare and contrast publicity for a moment:
Today, again, I am very proud to call myself a Democrat.
When I woke up, I turned C-SPAN on, and they are still occupying the House.
