One does surprise if Greene and Boebert had an understanding of what they have been voting in opposition to, and in the event that they did, why they’re so against sick individuals gaining access to bone marrow?
The cartoon villainy of Greene and Boebert can be nearly humorous in the event that they weren’t members of the Home whose votes assist make coverage selections for the nation.
The vote was a reminder of why Home Republicans can’t be allowed to take again the bulk in 2022. A Republican-controlled Home would put individuals like Greene and Boebert within the majority, and their concepts about letting Leukemia sufferers die with out entry to a nationwide bone marrow registry may acquire extra traction.
Greene and Boebert don’t belong in Congress, as their extremism may get Individuals killed.
