The Unpopularity Contest

The House Trumpcare bill is outlandishly unpopular
yet the Senate decided to make it even worse,
with deeper cuts to Medicaid and Medicare,
and still taking health care from tens of millions.

Trump himself is at record disapproval,
with a plurality of Americans wanting him impeached,
except for Congressional GOP who defend him,
and Congressional Dems who avoid the “I” word.

And the Republicans are so disliked
that they even lost a reliably red House seat.
Oh, wait. They didn’t. Democrats lost that one.

Either unpopularity isn’t enough to stop
Trump, the Republicans and their agenda,
or maybe this unpopularity contest isn’t over yet.

And Dems would do well to compete on populism
— instead of competing in unpopularity.

Be populist, pointed, provocative and popular
over a pint with some political pals
at your local, progressive social club.
