Turns out, a hell of a lot.

Today millions and millions of Americans are realizing that our country is entirely unprepared for a global pandemic.

Our delayed response and a Republican funding cut to the CDC’s pandemic teams in 2018 could cost thousands of lives and has already led to a virtual panic as we all are left to create our own response plans, household by household. 

While some representatives, like Congressman Troy Balderson, await orders on how they should vote along party lines regarding a coronavirus relief package, others like Congresswoman Katie Porter are taking matters into their own hands.

There is no shortage of bad news today but here is some good newsOne Congresswoman isn’t afraid to use her voice to make a difference.

Rep. Katie Porter got a commitment from a high-level Trump official saying that every American can get tested for COVID-19 for free. Watch the entire clip here. It is brilliant and so is she.

By now I’m sure most of you have heard of Katie Porter. If not, she is a California Congresswoman who, in 2018, flipped her suburban and traditionally conservative Congressional District for the first time in 53 years. 

Sound familiar? 

In 2018, women like Katie Porter and those who supported them (i.e. all of you) changed the face of politics as we know it. Today we have real, honest, hard working Americans like Katie Porter in Congress who will stop at nothing to fight for their constituents. 

I can’t wait to join her on January 1st.
